Newest Aquaponics Lab! “Garden 6” Underway at Adventist Christian Academy

We are proud to partner with Adventist Christian Academy in Charlotte, NC to build the latest Aquaponics Lab (Garden 6/100). The Lab will include a greenhouse with aquaponics and hydroponics systems for STEM learning opportunities. Solar panels will power pumps, fans and accessories, a true display of education through sustainable practices. Below are some words from ACA Principal Fred Armstrong:

“Charlotte’s Adventist Christian Academy is excited about partnering with 100 Gardens this year as we move our educational program to match the goals of the S.T.E.M. initiative.  We are looking for ways to create healthier, more ecologically conscious and higher thinking citizens for tomorrow’s world.  We also want our students to be involved with taking a role in helping our less fortunate neighbors in a practical and sustainable way, even at the earliest of elementary school grade levels.  The Aquaponics lab as designed and supported by 100 Gardens is a huge part of meeting these goals on our campus.  It’s ability to connect us with other learners both locally and internationally is taking our students educational experience way beyond the classroom.  100 Gardens’ is our connection to the future of education in 2015.”
