Initiatives

Purple Plow

The Purple Plow Challenge encourages students grades 5-12 to research scenarios related to food, hunger and sustainability and build their own prototypes to solve the defined problem. Resources provided for facilitators, students and volunteers are written by teachers, aligned to national learning standards and reviewed by industry experts.

Short on time? Also make sure to check out the Purple Plow Puzzlers! Puzzlers are hands-on STEM activities that can be completed in 1-2.5 hours. Puzzlers sharpen critical and creative thinking through agricultural-related activities. They follow the “create, test & improve, and share” steps in the Purple Plow engineering design process.

How do you use AFBFA resources? We are always looking for ways to create resources that are more impactful.
