Rebecca von Groote, the academic coordinator for the University of Kentucky’s horticulture, plant and soil science degree, offers a presentation on the crop, soil and horticulture science track that is an option for students who express an interest in research-based STEM careers.

Von Groote’s presentation discusses the major, highlights some of the faculty’s recent and diverse research efforts and talks about career opportunities and outlook. She is available for classroom visits from late February through April, particularly in honors and AP Biology, AP Chemistry and AP Environmental Science students.
