In the early 1980s, something amazing began to happen in classrooms across the globe – computers were introduced to facilitate computer-guided learning. This changed the landscape of education, as there never before was a tool that could cover such a broad range or be personalized to students of all needs and levels.
Today, we’re seeing a similar phenomenon. Classroom gardens, particularly aquaponics gardens, are the new and exciting tool that are sweeping schools throughout the nation, and for good reason! Using aquaponics as a classroom learning tool not only can aide in the teaching of engineering, math, science, and more, but can also make a huge, positive impact on students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Join Kieran Foran, CMO and co-founder of Trifecta Ecosystems, as he explores aquaponics as a classroom learning tool, and reveals how his work in the field has left an imprint on students and educators throughout New England.
