'High-Tech Farming'

As the global population continues to increase, farmers will need to utilize innovative technologies to produce more food with fewer resources. This session introduces lessons and resources featured in the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix that have been developed to engage elementary students in an exploration of precision agriculture technologies—self-driving tractors, precision farming drones, farm robotics, lasers, and sensors. Attendees will participate in hands-on STEM experiences with GPS, drones, and robots.
