They experienced the NC State University turfgrass program by visiting classroom and research facilities, gained hands-on-experience, and met with NC State University students to learn about their major. Friday featured  dinner, quiz bowl, and guest speakers. On Saturday  participants met scientists, toured campus, as well as the turfgrass field labs and Lonnie Poole Golf Course.
