The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has recognized the winning team in its summer Purple Plow Farm to Food Truck Challenge. Curry Express and teacher Priya Muthukumaravelu (home school, Port Orange, Florida) were selected as the winner in this national competition
Purple Plow is a free STEM-education platform for middle-school and high-school educators. Students research scenarios related to food, hunger and sustainability and build their own prototypes to solve problems. The resources – provided for facilitators, students and volunteers – are written by teachers, aligned to national learning standards and reviewed by industry experts.
The fall Purple Plow Challenge contest, Cattle Ranch Riddle, runs Aug. 15 to Nov. 1. Every day, cattle ranching families are trying to raise a healthy and safe product, while at the same time, maintaining a profitable business and being stewards of natural resources. Students will construct a model of a cattle ranch that addresses production as well as environmental, economic and societal needs.
Purple Plow is a special project of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The resources are made possible through the generous support of the title sponsor, Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont.
