CAPSTONE: Feeding 9 billion through sustainable farm design (3 of 3)

Unit 5: Food (biosphere and geosphere)
Lesson 24 of 24

Objective: In addition to the objectives from parts one and two, by the end of the thir part of the Food CAPSTONE experience, student will be able to 1) give and receive feedback that improves prototypes through iteration and 2) present a final solution idea to an outside panel of students, teachers, and community professionals.

Big Idea: The human population will approach 9 billion by 2050, but our current food system was not designed to sustainably feed so many. How might we apply our understanding of agricultural methods to feed 9 billion people in an environmentally sustainable manner?
