    This project has been a very rewarding experience for me and my students. Getting to work on the aquaponics system has been a real learning experience for everyone. It has allowed me to easily teach complex material such as the requirement of micro and macro nutrients to my students with ease. It has stressed easy and sustainable farming practices in agriculture as well. The aquaponics system produced a verity of herbs as well as some tomatoes. The tilapia are doing well and we hope that they will continue to grow to harvest size. As this project progresses we hope to add small mouth bass into the mix and release them into the local streams.
