On 24 September 2010, 340 students from 18 Mexican universities visited the center’s headquarters at El Batán, Mexico, where they toured the facilities while learning about CIMMYT’s mission and work. The aim of the event was to encourage students already interested in agricultural development as well as to inspire those who perhaps were unsure of their future careers.
