This week, VBI hosted Teens for the Future, acting as this year’s site for the organization's annual field trip. The group of 30 teenagers is involved in 4-H through Ohio State University. Dr. Neysa Call, head of Public Relations and Outreach for VBI, hosted the students and their advisors, giving them a tour of the facilities and teaching them about bioinformatics. 

Teens for the Future has visited organizations such as the Chicago Board of Trade, the American Soybean Association, and others. Becky Cropper, Extension Agent for 4-H Youth ad Community Development, noted that the group felt that a visit to VBI would “greatly enhance their learning experience.”
