What is aquaponics? Aquaponics is a soilless farming technique that produces protein (fish) and vegetables in one system. Fish are the most efficient forms of meat to raise, and vegetable production can be increased up to ten times greater than traditional field agriculture. Our students helped construct the system and now use it as a studying tool.  We have tilapia and plant life all together in one ecosystem. Stop on by and take a look on the second floor. It’s fascinating!
