Developing Agricultural Technology using lessons from Space Exploration

students learning about technology together

Prue and Tom are real Australian entrepreneurs who set out to solve a big problem!

The problem – the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger: the goal to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

They used the skills outlined in the design and production curriculum to develop a technology solution to grow food in new ways. Hear their story and the ways in which they used these processes in real life innovation. See how you and your students can be inspired to set some goals and a challenge of your own.
