Do you have questions about why there is a big push for students to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)? Or what jobs, in addition to farming, are available for graduates with agricultural science degrees? USDA Chief Scientist and Under Secretary for Research, Education, and Economics Dr. Catherine Woteki will host a live Virtual Office Hours session on Twitter this Friday, August 23, 2012 at 2 p.m. EDT to answer your questions about what USDA is doing to make sure we are keeping the pipeline filled with promising students.

If you have questions like:

Why do we need more students to study STEM subjects?
What career opportunities are available to me with agricultural science degrees?
What is USDA doing to help students that are interested in studying agricultural science?
How do I encourage my child to study STEM subjects?

Join us on Twitter tomorrow and use the hashtag #StudyAgScience to keep up with conversation. Please use the #StudyAgScience hashtag in all of your tweets. You can tweet questions, comments or just follow along.  We will answer as many as we can in one hour from the @ScienceAtUSDA Twitter account. See you tomorrow at 2pm EDT.

    As a agscience teacher I would be intereested in recieveing a copy of the questions and answers that will occur to use in my classroom. I will be on the road at that time tomorrow taking some students to the Ney York Statee Fair for Ag Science Career Development Events and will not be able to participate first hand. Thank you for your consideration. Gleason Walley-Chateaugay Central School
