The MSU STEM-FEE (Food, Energy, and the Environment) Academy began in high schools in the Lansing School District.  The online Academy is open to everyone. We engage students in learning about vitally important STEM careers in the agricultural sciences, careers that affect our national and global security and the economy. We explore the applied biological STEM fields of animal science, crop and soil sciences, forestry, entomology, fisheries and wildlife, food science, and horticulture. Most people have never heard of these careers, but all of them are critical to our national security and most don’t have enough people to meet the job demand. STEM-FEE scientists research ways to solve global problems related to food security, soil health, climate change, environmental sustainability and a host of other areas that affect life and the quality of life. We need more graduates from these fields to help solve current and future problems.
