Building and maintaining an aquaponics system has allowed these students to explore indoor food production right in their classroom - but they also learned about ecosystems and biodiversity, used their artistic skills to decorate the system, researched different types of fish, made scientific observations about plant growth, and used math to track their data. They even went on field trips to learn more about aquaponics, fish, and our food system. They won an honourable mention from LSF's Jack Layton Award, and now they hope to teach the rest of their school all about aquaponics!
