FCR-STEM partnered with Time2Give to write a summer camp AgSTEM integrated curriculum that focuses on the global issue of food insecurity. The curriculum was implemented in the summer of 2022 with Atlanta based middle school students. The curriculum provides a Problem Based Learning opportunity that delivers a long-term investigation through building code that runs sensors in an aquaponics system while increasing critical thinking skills and computational thinking. Students are challenged to create solutions to help alleviate some of the issues communities face due to food insecurity.
