DESIGN LAB: Nitrogen (3 of 4)

Unit 5: Food (biosphere and geosphere)
Lesson 17 of 24

Objective: Students will be able to engage in an engineering design thinking cycle to develop a functional nitrogen cycle prototype from unique model ecoystems.

Big Idea: A functional nitrogen cycle is an essential part of healthy agricultural systems. How might we use models to help us understand how the nitrogen cycle becomes disrupted and what might be done to prevent disruption?
