Agriculture Science Research Institute (ASRI) is a one-week residential program that allows students to grow their interests in STEM areas, experience Purdue’s campus life, and earn a college credit. To demonstrate research, innovation, and discovery in agriculture and science; Purdue Agriculture faculty, graduate students, and staff serve as research mentors of hands-on experiments and projects in their facilities throughout the week. Previously, students were hosted in Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Agronomy, Biochemistry, Botany and Plant Pathology, Food Science, and Horticulture and Landscape Architecture Departments.  Students will spend their days conducting various research projects and connecting with college leadership throughout the week. Students will present their findings and learning outcomes to their student peers, faculty and staff, and any guests during a culminating event at the end of the week.

Since 2011, Purdue Agriculture has welcomed Indiana high school students and teachers to become global hunger fighters through a free event. After writing a research paper regarding global challenges in a country, students are invited to present their research to Purdue University faculty, staff, and industry experts. The event allows students and teachers to network with each other, interact with Purdue Agriculture academic departments, and learn from experts in agriculture and other disciplines about global food security challenges and solutions.
