Alliance HS @ Kenton Campus
Students learned how to grow spinach and basil hydroponically. They learned the theory behind various hydroponics systems, as well as how hydroponics are applied in different farming situations through reading articles and watching videos. Students also learned the science behind plant growth and nutrient needs through lab activities and growing their own plants.
Students thrive from hands-on experiences like this. It would be great if this could be extended farther into the community, such as growing goods to donate to community organizations.
