Many students do not know how the natural world around them works much less where their food comes from. In our Biology class we have an opportunity to set up an aquaponics system that can remedy both situations at the same time! Since our school has a majority of low income families, perhaps this could also be a source of fresh herbs or small vegetables. We will use simple aquariums and plastic tubs to set up a model of a natural water ecosystem where we can grow herbs and vegetables in a farm landless situation: our classroom. We will not be using chemicals to feed our plants. Fish will provide the necessary nitrates and nitrites the plants require. The plants in turn will provide the fish with oxygenated clean water. In addition, we will use our aquaponic system to complete experiments. These experiments will be student driven and might include such questions as: Which herb grows the best in our system? Which fish provide the most nutrients for our plants? Does water flow rate affect plant growth?
