Together We Can Strengthen The Future


At DuPont Pioneer, we believe the next generation must be actively engaged in agricultural science to ensure the ability to produce enough nutritious food to nurture an ever expanding world population. To help youth connect to science using real world experiences within the context of agriculture, we have assembled a collection of engaging free resources. We invite you to explore!

The following organizations provide curriculum and activity resources for educators, volunteers and parents:

DuPont Pioneer offers High School STEM Day experiences throughout the year. These are interactive half-day sessions held at our Johnston, Iowa campus. The sessions provide students with a glimpse into the exciting world of agricultural science and future career opportunities in STEM.

In 2017, four sessions will be offered:

  • Thursday, April 6th, 2017 (morning and afternoon)
  • Thursday, November 16th, 2017 (morning and afternoon)

Morning sessions are scheduled from 9:00 to 11:45 AM. Afternoon sessions are scheduled from 1:00 - 3:45 PM.

For each session:

  • Advanced registration is required for students, chaperones and teachers.
  • Registrations must be completed 10 days prior to the event.
  • Attendees are capped at 60 for each session (this includes students, teachers and chaperones).
  • Should your group exceed 15 attendees, reach out to tours@pioneer.com as space is limited.
