Our Crazy Adventure With Mr. Jason

by Kyleigh, age 11 It all started when me and my sister started to go to the Boys And Girls Club.  We were very shy until we met Mr. Jason the STEAM teacher.

Then we got to go on this cool field trip to “Baird Creek Park.” We first went on a trail but then Mr. Jason made it more fun by letting us cross the river several times and we had to hop on some stones and it was really fun because we got a little wet. We also saw crayfish and minnows. ButRead More →

Aeroponic, Hydroponic and Aquaponic

by Josiah, age 11 So how this works, is the aero in aeroponic stands for air. Hydro in hydroponic stands for water. Aqua in aquaponic stands for aquaculture which means life. And ponics, in the last part of each word, means to grow. These plants grow so much better than a regular garden, they also use 95% less water. That is great because that means you don’t need to water it every day. Also there are no pesticides so that every thing you eat wont get you sick. Oh wow this is the best part, you can do this in space with 0 gravity wow!Read More →

Indoor Garden

by Josiah, age 11 Indoor garden or should I call it the steam garden. Our indoor garden is an aeroponic garden. That means that it only runs off of water and the pump is similar to a fish tank pump. It sprays out of nozzles but it is not just water it sprays out, it is plant food. Also every thing I said is just put into a tank. The plant food is from general hydroponics. We feed it every 2 weeks and water it every week or more like every 2 days. The tomato plant has almost reached 20,tomatoes the roots for the tomatoRead More →
