PASA is a 13-day residential program to
immerse participants in a specific field of study, through a series of hands-on
labs, and workshops designed to provide real-life experiences within the STEM
fields throughout our academic departments. Students will pick a track (theme)
of study and have research projects to complete and present during the
institute. Our three theme are Business Science, Sustainability Technology, and
Forensic Science. In addition PASA makes industry visits and participates in agro-tourism activities across the state of Indiana.

Since 2011, Purdue Agriculture has welcomed
Indiana high school students and teachers to become global hunger fighters
through a free, two-day event. After writing a research paper regarding global challenges in a
foreign country, five students from each school are invited to present their
research to Purdue University faculty and staff 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.
Many different camps and
workshops are offered throughout the year to provide youth with additional
positive youth development experiences. Some of these will take place in
various counties near you, while others take place overnight on Purdue’s
campus. Check out Purdue
Extensions Camps and Conferences.
