VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of an animal scientist is like.
Animal Scientists create medicines, vaccines, new feedstuffs, and a wide range of services for veterinarians, livestock producers, and others who care for farm and companion animals. Most animal scientists specialize in a specific animal, such as beef cattle, horses, goats, etc. Here’s how to get started!
- Pick your favorite animal.
- Create a ‘Five Fast Facts’ card to help community members better care for this animal. (canva.com has some great free templates)
- Share your ‘Five Fast Facts’ card with your local vet office and/or county Extension agency. Ask them to display it in their office!
- Optional: Share your ‘Five Fast Facts’ card in the Student Showcase to build your resume!
