This science-based program for teens, started in June 2016 and attracts students from around The Bahamas. It focuses on the agricultural and marine resources in connection with food production and environmental stewardship in The Bahamas. We are committed to addressing the issues of food security through capacity building in the agriculture and fishing industries, by helping young Bahamians to understand the connections between science, food and overall welfare of our Nation. Our hands-on approach to teaching and is key to the success of this program.
