Aquaponics in the Next Generation

Chris Asbell

Things to consider...
Science Notebooks record this process
How do we work on observations?
How do we write about our observtions?
Compare and Contrast
assessment of learning
Community Support
energy audit
What does this look like?
Aquaponics and hydroponics fulfills each of these practices!
Why Aquaponics?
Next Generation Science Standards
activities related to investigation.
scientists use practices to...
determine what needs to be measured
observe phenomena
plan experiments, observation, and methods of data collection
build instruments
engage in disciplined fieldwork
and identify sources of uncertainty
Fish tank
Grow bed
Growing media
Circulating pump
PVC piping
Rubber tubing
parent volunteers
local businesses
multiple grade level presentations
Blind Contour
Scientific illustration

Fish are cool.
Think back to the science practices...
1. Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
6. Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
7. Engaging in argument from evidence
8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
