PARTNER CASE STUDY

For Ronda Hamm, a high school internship studying the habits of ants led to a graduate degree in entomology at Cornell University and eventually a successful career at Corteva Agriscience. Nearly 24 years later Ronda is paying her experience forward to Purdue Polytechnic High School students. The next entomologist may be just a handshake away. 

 

As Global Academic Relations Manager, Ronda spearheaded Corteva’s partnership with Purdue Polytechnic High School to mentor students, open doors to the world of smart farms and shine a light on the role technology plays in producing food for the world’s nearly 8 billion people. So, how will we feed the estimated 10 billion people by 2050? That’s the question Corteva, a global innovator of seed and crop protection products, asked 80 Purdue Polytechnic High School students. The students’ answers were amazing.
