                    female student in red tshirt holds plantStudents at Terry Sanford High School in Mr. Brian Thompson’s environmental science classes were introduced to Aquaponics this year for research and classroom lessons. Aquaponics combines fish culture with raising crops by placing the two together in a single ecosystem. Through a trial-and-error design process, Mr. Thompson’s students designed a replicable system with a small footprint that would be a simple addition to any classroom. The goldfish live in a tub on the bottom level, water is pumped up to the top level where seeds are germinating and then cascades down to the lower levels where stronger plants flourish under active lighting.

                    Aquaponics is one expression of the sustainability efforts happening at Terry Sanford high school. The agricultural method uses over 90% less water than conventional growing in soil, utilizes a much smaller footprint while expanding vertically, requires no pesticides and does not use artificial fertilizers. Different fish species can be selected for harvest in larger operations. The final system designed at Terry Sanford is small, inexpensive and reusable.
