Hydroponics and Aquaponics systems are ecosystems that constitute microcosm of nature. Great educational value issues: bacteria, plants, fish, water and more. Systems allow carrying out bio-researchs and appropriate for elementary schools, high schools and teen centers. These systems are also suitable for organizations that address the special needs populations.
The underlying philosophy and Hydroponics Aquaponics system is present. Nature creates its natural cycles and we imitate them to produce benefits without damaging the sources of abundance. As long as we grasp thatevery process is related to another, endless reciprocal relations, sharpens the understanding of the natural world around us hand in hand with understanding the processes taking place in it. The existence of Hydroponics Aquaponics systems requires strict health, discipline, and understanding of chemistry, physics and basic biology, patience and teamwork. Children who are exposed to natural ecosystems at an early age understand the consequences of waste compared to recycling, pollution versus protecting the environment and more. The exposure develop in them green thinking which constitutes a fundamental value essential in modern society, especially in Israel, where natural resources are shrinking.
Hydroponics and Aquaponics systems illustrate practice processes in biological sciences, agriculture, ecology, physics and more. The system is ideal for the study of biomedical research, theses and demo external groups.
Subjects directly related to these systems:
- Nitrogen and carbon cycle in nature
- Symbiosis between organisms
- There are (permaculture)
- Ecology of natural systems
- Aqua Culture and fish breeding
- Water quality and water treatment
- Physiology of plants and photosynthesis
- Alternative energy and recycling
- Exposure of the general school green areas and the environment through the system and accompanying explanatory signs
- “Declaration” public school that is green and environmentally cleaner aims
We will give a full response to schools and institutions from planning individual and institution to adapt the systems to our needs and ongoing training of counselors and teachers.
DIY - Do it yourself
You decided to build a system by yourself? we are here for you! In the DIY page you will find guides to set up and run a full system. The guides are free of charge.
Aquaponics and hydroponics Workshop for home growers, beginners or advanced . In the workshop you will get all the information you need, including written manuals showing how to build and operate Hydroponics and Aquaponics systems in your home!
