Soil-less Agriculture

With the rapidly growing technology in line with the needs of people, industry brought ambient problems with it. One of these problems was the pollution that would disrupt the ecological balance, such as air pollution and water pollution. With the disruption of the ecological balance, the lives of aquatic and terrestrial species were also endangered. While the generations of some living things decrease, the human population continues to increase inversely. So with the increasing human population, people must meet their physiological needs and their nutritional needs. Thus, thanks to soil-less agriculture, we have achieved vertical agriculture, ecological balance and efficient production.

NBS topics covered in the learning scenario:

Sustainable Development
Green spaces and urban transformation;
Economic opportunities and green jobs I asked middle school students aged 10-14 to create a sustainable living space with soil-less agriculture by using waste materials with distance online education in 3 90-minute lessons. Thus, students met the agricultural needs of the growing population. I have enabled them to grow their own crops with landless agriculture in areas where agricultural land has decreased with the decrease of cultivated areas and increase of buildings.

  1. Science of Flight
  2. Aviation Education: How things fly
  3. 10.000 Airplanes up in the Sky
  4. Finding your Way through the Clouds

This lesson plan takes into consideration the 4Cs of Learning and Innovation Skills (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity).

Students watch a teacher-led show. It creates ideas of how warm air rises and how planes move in the air. Students will then watch the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space video to understand how the planes fly. They will then create models of their own aircraft and helicopters using 3D Tinkercad designs or recycled materials.
