We have an amazing group of talented, dedicated and diverse students that compete at a high level despite operating on a shoe-string budget. Our students consistently earn high accolades through sheer force of will. Somehow they always rise to the challenge and hold their own against properly funded schools across the country using they ingenuity and ability. With the proper supports our school could become a premier STEM program in our city.
As part of the largest high school in the Philadelphia School District, Our school is home to over 3,500 students with over 50 languages spoken and just as many socioeconomic backgrounds.
School provides a safe space where students differences are embraced and students can focus on their learning and growth as scientists and as emerging adults.
Students will use the aquarium pumps, fittings and tubing to build hydroponic gardens within our school community
It is our hope that students will be able to help stem the obesity crisis in our community by engineering and maintaining vertical hydroponic gardens in our classrooms and in our homes.
Our goal is to grow crops to be used in our student run cafe with the potential surplus going to to families who are in need.
With the construction materials provided by this project students will be able to design and build their own vertical hydroponic gardens and grow their own healthy food alternatives.
