This term a focus group of Grade 6 students have been working on creating an indoor hydroponics garden.  They intend on growing basil, coriander, and various other herbs.  They have begun by building a miniature prototype (which is now going to be used as an “Aquaponics” system) to make sure it worked, they are now in the process of building a full sized model.

    

The idea is that in a very small space they will be able to grow a large number of plants.  Our next challenge will be to stick the pipes together, then create a lighting system.
