Topic: Understanding Earth and space systems - Water systems
Students will investigate the efficiencies of traditional sprinkler systems and drip irrigation systems. Using this knowledge, and the materials and tools provided, students will create an in-ground and an on ground drip irrigation system. They will use their systems to create a fair test to determine which drip system waters the soil in the most eco-friendly manner. Students will complete a report on the steps they took to solve the design challenge.
