EESW has created a cross-curricular STEM project to challenge teams of students to design, build and program their own smart micro-greenhouse. KS3 pupils will develop new skills in coding and engineering to solve problems in order to effectively produce a food source within an urban environment.
Pupils are encouraged to design and manufacture their own micro-greenhouse, as well as produce a project report and present their final analysis.
The Urban Farming Project draws on a variety of STEM skills but also looks at a blended learning approach, including learning in Geography, Science & Maths, to promote a wider teacher audience and participation.
