5th Grade Learning About Sustainable Farming

Fifth grade is learning about sustainable farming and agriculture.
They are learning about how farmers use drones and the images from the pictures they take to more specifically target what is needed for their crops.

With increased consumer demand, large-scale industrial farming can wreak havoc on soils, groundwater, the atmosphere, and other aspects of the environment. Sustainable farming practices make an effort to meet food production requirements while minimizing these harmful impacts.

Sustainable agriculture is benefitting from drone-gathered remote sensing data, which allows farmers to optimize their strategies and gain valuable feedback on how to proceed in an environmentally sustainable way.

Fifth-grade students also studied the forces that are involved in a drone's ability to fly and change direction.
