Project Bank Challenges
This year's EngineerIT challenge focuses on sustainable agriculture and the notion of agroecology. Middle school students research major elements related to sustainable agriculture and design a "better farm" for a Louisiana product based on best practices posted by the LSU Ag Center.
This year’s Day of Design Mission will center around food waste, a challenge that impacts students in their daily lives and their communities. Students will take an interdisciplinary approach, tapping into physical and biological sciences, English, technology, and engineering fundamentals to design a prototype that will reduce food waste for their school’s cafeteria. Teams can tackle this challenge using a wide range of materials, from everyday resources available in the classroom to design software to 3D printed components.
