To provide teachers, counselors, advisors and students, at the high school and middle school levels, a resource for guiding potential college-bound students to programs that offer forestry and natural resource degree programs.
This careers site was conceived as part of the outreach component of a National Science Foundation grant (NSF 0501763) entitled "Association Genetics of Natural Genetic Variation and Complex Traits in Pine". The project is often referred to as ADEPT which stands for Allele Discovery of Economic Pine Traits.
Ideas for the content of this site were developed during a summer workshop attended by three volunteer teachers from North Carolina (Ava Closs, Brandon Higgins, and Jeremy May) with guidance from several NCSU faculty and staff including Tilla Fearn, Thomas Easley, Barry Goldfarb, Nicholas Wheeler and Lisa Schabenberger.
