The Animal Sciences Workshop for Youth is an intensive 3-day training at Purdue University. The goal of the workshop is to educate high school aged youth about animal production practices while stimulating their minds to think about new and improved ways to raise animals. By bringing 4-H youth together with Animal Science professors, the workshop serves to teach and recruit students at the same time. Since 1973, this significant educational program has affected more then 8,000 youth delegates from 11 states and British Columbia. 94% of the delegates attending in 2000 found the workshop to be a positive learning experience.
