Grow a new generation of agricultural professionals and problem solvers by conducting hydroponics activities in your classroom!

Whether using alternatives for plant production to address changes to the Earth and its environment, learning how to grow crops on other planets, or simply using new farming approaches to accommodate urban populations, humans are employing different methods – such as engaging in hydroponics activities – to cultivate vegetation. Teach students how to use hydroponics, the method of growing plants without soil, to lay the foundation for future agricultural careers while empowering all students to solve problems in meaningful ways.

Student groups should then individually present their parts of the project from the beginning through the final steps.
