From Edutopia, this is the story of a high school student who brought his hobby — growing food with an aquaponic system for his family and neighbors — to his school’s underutilized greenhouse, creating a local edible schoolyard for his fellow students and his community. And he’s not stopping there:
“I want to bring this system into many different schools. You know, learning opportunity that a system like this provides is immense. You’ve got water chemistry, agriculture, science, physics, mathematics, economics. A lot of these subjects could be modeled from this particular system. If I can provide a curriculum to go with this system then the knowledge of aquaponics will be proliferated throughout, hopefully, the United States.”
