'Exploring Aquaponics in the Elementary Classroom'
Aquaponics is a symbiotic system that combines aquaculture and hydroponics in a recirculating ecosystem. This session will introduce STEM lessons and resources featured in the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix that have been developed to engage elementary students in an exploration of aquaculture, hydroponics, and aquaponics while investigating the themes of sustainable food production and ecological cycles. Participants will discover how to create affordable, small-scale hydroponic and aquaponic systems designed specifically for the elementary classroom.|
