Our Hungry Planet: Food for a Growing Population
Collector: Ann V.
Bugs for breakfast? The Flipside science unit module, “Our Hungry Planet: Food for a Growing Population,” introduces middle schoolers to issues related to food production and innovative solutions to world hunger. Scholars investigate the advantages of vertical farming, ways to reduce food waste, and sustainable food systems. They also research the gut microbiome, a distinct organ in the human body, and its function in food digestion. To conclude the unit, young agronomists design their solutions to global hunger.
