American Farm Bureau Foundation's Latest Purple Plow Project Challenges Students' Ideas on Soil

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 11:40:31 CDT

American Farm Bureau Foundation's Latest Purple Plow Project Challenges Students' Ideas on Soil Save the Soil is the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s latest Purple Plow Challenge. The interactive challenge, which runs through Nov. 1, asks students to research, design, construct, test and report on a solution to top soil erosion concerns in their area. The top three entries will win a 3D printer and Visa gift card to help buy supplies for future maker challenges.



The Purple Plow Challenge is a great project for a multitude of groups with students in fifth to eighth grade including maker spaces, after-school programs, in-school lessons, 4-H clubs, library learning, scout troops and more.



“Purple Plow Challenge projects provide students a way to learn by doing. Each challenge has them explore agricultural topics through hands-on learning,” said Julia Recko, director of education outreach at the Foundation.



The Foundation’s Purple Plow contest runs seasonally throughout the year. All challenges are written by teachers, align to national learning standards and are reviewed by industry experts.



Purple Plow is a special project of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The resources are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor DuPont Pioneer. Visit www.purpleplowchallenge.org for more information on challenges.
