Aquaponics is an innovative urban agriculture technique that combines keeping fish with the growing of plants in a way that reduces work and waste. In this session, Urban Agriculture High coordinator, Dustin Bajer, will demonstrate how to convert a simple classroom fish tank into a closed-loop, food-producing aquaponics system for the classroom. The session will include a list of low-cost materials, detailed design considerations, tips and tricks on how to assemble and maintain your simple system, and various curricular links. A simple classroom aquaponics system is a perfect tool for teaching about design, food security, ecology, nutrient cycles, and environmental sustainability.
