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.

Jeremiah Sweeny starts his day at Purdue Polytechnic High School at 8:45 a.m. He and about 15 of his classmates map out their daily plans to meet their academic and project plan goals, while teachers track students’ competency levels, academic needs and progress. The first part of his day – called his Personalized Learning Community – also includes instruction on teamwork and employability skills.
