Agricultural Waste, the New Drones?


(The video newscast is disabled for this preview.)


1. What do you know about the agricultural industry? Why is it important?

2. How can agricultural waste be harmful to the environment? Give an example.

3. Have you ever turned waste into something new? If so, what did you create? How does this action impact the environment?


Students will be able to prove with evidence the big idea, “systems are supported by it’s parts to perform a function,” by exploring written and multimedia sources about agricultural and drone systems to create a drone system model that combats waste generation.
