For our project we will build an aquaponics fish barrel system that will grow produce that can be fed to animals and livestock at our school. Our project is in process and updates will be added along the way.
This project would benefit our campus that is unique in that we have several varieties of animals that live on campus that we learn how to care for. This system would also benefit students taking the Environmental Science course and provide real-life hands on experience.
One thing that we would have done differently is to choose a system that allows you to see the living fish so that we could better observe their behavior.
We were able to create a project that will be self-sustaining and will continue to benefit the students and animals on our campus after we have graduated.
Students and administrators at Butler Tech can submit their projects to us for inclusion on the website. Please only submit projects with appropriate content and that are clearly documented with instructions and outlines, including photos and other references to help readers.
