My students need a hydroponics system to learn about growing food.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are academically gifted students that live in a high poverty area. The district received a grant to provide free breakfast and lunch for all students because of its high number that qualify. The staff at my school try to provide experiences that will show them what is beyond their community because they may not have those opportunities available elsewhere.
My students desire to understand the world in every capacity but our resources are limited.
Please support my project!
Having hydroponics systems in my classroom will enable my students to learn through hands-on experiences. I wish for my students to have opportunities beyond the textbook. Having these systems will enable my students to go deeper with their understanding of where our food comes from and how to be self sufficient. Many of them are interested in careers in science and I would like to give them the opportunity to explore the scientific process with hydroponics.
My students will gain confidence, leadership, responsibility, and knowledge when it comes to food sources and various growing methods through hands-on exploration.
These students are academically gifted and need the resources to go beyond the curriculum. Please support my project!
