South Iredell High School AquaLab Construction – Part 2

After our last post, Ron Morgan engaged students at SIHS who are eagerly waiting for the AquaLab to be complete. Topics covered ranged from food to culture to international outreach.

Construction of the two raft hydroponic systems and the fish tank stands have started. The pond liners have been cut and inserted into their wooden frames. The frames have a horizontal support beam to prevent bowing when filled with water.

The fish tank stands will be raised to allow for gravity draining into the greenhouse hydroponic units. This will raise the tanks for maximum viewing.
