Bunn High School

The first classroom visit by the plant pathology outreach committee was to Bunn High School in 2012. The outreach group likes to target schools in rural areas that may not have as many opportunities to work with students, faculty, and staff at N.C. State. During this visit, the outreach group helped reinforce biology course objectives by showing samples of parasitism, mutualism, and antagonism.
