Gus Koerner

Raised in Texas, Gus graduated in Agricultural Education from Utah State University, where he also served as the Principal Research Technician for the Crop Physiology Lab growing crops for food in space.

That experience brought him to Florida to work at Kennedy Space Center in Space Biology Research and Education. As a Project and Program Manager at KSC he was able to facilitate joint research and education programs between NASA, USDA and several universities. His team produced programs such as Space Ag in The Classroom for middle school and The Spaceflight and Life Science Training Program for undergraduate students. He also collaborated on programs such as Tomatoes In Space and The Land display at Disney’s Epcot Center.

The proud father of six children and eight grandchildren in a blended family, Gus served as one of our 4-H Youth Development Agents from 2005-2012. He is once again bringing his passion for youth engagement and outdoor education and shooting sports to UF/IFAS Extension Brevard County 4-H as a Program Assistant.
