How will we feed 10 billion people by the year 2050?
Journey 2050 takes students on a virtual farm simulation that explores world food sustainability. Using an inquiry based approach the program encourages students to make decisions and adjust them as they see their impact on society, the environment and the economy at a local and global scale. The students hear from farmers across the globe.
Feed the world from the palm of your hand
Grow crops, raise livestock, craft and sell goods and engage with local and global partners as you level up. Feeding the world relies on balancing your economic, social and environmental sustainability so strive to be a leader. Along the way, real farmers from across the world will show you what they are doing on their farms.
For grades 6-12
Students take a virtual journey to Africa, in which they become a volunteer to help end the famine caused by soil nutrient depletion. Through the interactive experience, students learn how nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus deficiencies can stunt plant growth in multiple ways. They also learn that replenishing the land with fertilizer can help farmers achieve higher crop yields to feed more people.At the village, you encounter three maize farmers, each of whom faces a different crop problem. In each scenario, the farmer describes his or her growing conditions and then shows you photos of afflicted maize plants. Using a field manual, you must analyze each situation, offer a diagnosis and then recommend a remedy.
For grades K-5
Students join the Plant Nutrient Team in a quest to feed their family and our world. Exploring living organisms in the soil, discovering the nitrogen process and participating in a game show are just some of the things you can do in our interactive games section.
