Agricultural Engineering in the Classroom

Agricultural Engineering in the Classroom

Engineering isn’t only about gears and machines, it’s also about clean water, environmental sustainability and making this world a better place in which to live. This month’s featured activity, from Engineering is Elementary (EiE), is “Engineering Vertical Farms” designed for middle school classrooms. It features agricultural engineers exploring the challenges of food production and population growth.

An educator shared: “The unit has changed how I feel about leading engineering activities with kids because hands-on participation has really sparked interest.”
