The Science of Modern Agriculture: Engineering Machines, Sensors and Drones

Join us on January 18, starting at 6:30 pm Eastern time, and learn more about the science of modern agriculture! Engineering and Innovation is driving force behind the exciting field of modern agriculture. As the population of the Earth grows over the next 30 years, modern agriculture will be there working hard to ensure the planet’s need for food, fuel and fiber are being met; all while using less water, land and resources than ever before.

This seminar is part three of a five part series of web seminars providing teachers a deeper dive into the sophistication of modern agriculture. From drones to genetic engineering, modern agricultural advancements have enabled farmers to produce food, fuel, and fiber while using land and other resources more efficiently. Given pest pressure, climate change and other challenges - how can leveraging STEM innovations mitigate these challenges? Many Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and other three-dimensional science standards based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education will be highlighted in this series including, Climate and Weather, Heredity of Traits, and the Engineering Design Process.
