Robotics and Agriscience Opportunities in a Shifting Landscape

Our families have relied on farming for over 100 years, but recently we’ve seen an exciting shift in the space where technology and farming meet. More and more we’re seeing the equipment and machinery used to grow, harvest, and package crops become more and more reliant on software, robotics, and automation. This is opening a host of new opportunities for students interested in a hands-on career in science and technology, and where the Future’s Robotics/Agriscience pathway comes in.
