WildFire Detection Vechile

Using the power of technology, build and code a simulated wildfire tracking vehicle that looks for increased sound and temperature as it patrols an area.

Big Idea

In this lesson, we are going to explore wildfires and how they affect our world. First, we’ll unravel the mysteries of how these blazes spark to life. Next, we’ll connect the dots between our planet’s changing climate and the intensity of these fires. Finally, we’ll uncover ways we can step up to safeguard our precious forests. Get ready to journey through the fiery yet vital topic of wildfires and our role in protecting the earth’s green lungs!

Take Action!

In the “Take Action” section of this lesson, we will apply the insights gained from the “Big Idea” segment to construct a simulated wildfire detection vehicle. Using this newly acquired knowledge, you’ll create an autonomous vehicle aimed at detecting and alerting to wildfires, ensuring the safety of our forests and communities.
