Karen Plaut, Purdue’s Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture challenged a dozen Indiana high school students to “find their passion and pursue it.” Plaut officially welcomed only 20 students from around the State to participate into the field of research during a week at Purdue University as participants in the Pre-College Molecular Agriculture Summer Institute (MASI) during the month of June. Evy Spieth, junior at Woodlan High School was selected as one of the 20!

This program was created by Purdue Agriculture’s Office of Academic Programs as part of the Institute for Plant Sciences initiative. Students work alongside Purdue Agriculture faculty exploring the wide-ranging field of plant sciences and STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).

Participating in this program allows high school students work alongside Purdue researchers to see how they are looking for real life solutions to real life problems.

Way to go Evy!
