Introduction to Aquaponics
Define Aquaponics, Aquaculture, Hydroponics
History of Aquapoincs (Aztecs – Current)

We have many hands-on activities to offer your students as part of their field-trip experience.  While every group gets an engaging and thorough tour, we like to place meaningful emphasis on the science that matters most to you. Let us know where you are in your curriculum and which content areas you’d like to reinforce; we’ll adapt our tour for your group to give them the best experience possible. Activities are customized to the grade level and content focus of each student group.
