Agricultural Communication creates and distributes informal science education products used for outreach on behalf of Purdue Agriculture and Purdue Extension. We have the expertise to help you develop:
For teachers: AgComm offers a variety of programs and materials available for your students. There are opportunities to bring classes to our events or exhibits, or we can bring them to you.
For Purdue faculty: AgComm can develop customized educational materials or prograrms to fit your work. Including AgComm in a grant will ensure that you have the tools you need to educate the public on the important research going on at Purdue.
