Aquaponics in the Classroom
Aquaponics collage

In Partnership with Trifecta Ecosystem and the City That Feeds Itself(c), CREC Magnet schools have installed aquaponics systems in 7 schools, both elementary and secondary. By growing fish and plants together, students learn about ecosystems, engineering, plant/animal care, and healthy eating. Students collect data on their systems and problem solve to keep their plants healthy. At the high school level, semester-long courses have been designed for use with the systems.
