Seventh Graders Learn How to Grow Plants Without Soil

Brewer Middle School seventh graders learned about hydroponic and plant systems, and they designed their own hydroponic system. Brewer Middle School seventh graders learned about hydroponic and plant systems, and they designed their own hydroponic system. 

Hydroponics is a form of agriculture where plants are not grown in soil but in trays or grow beds fed by a constant flow of nutrient solution.

Teacher Naomi Biedenbach received a grant from the White Settlement ISD Education Foundation to implement the project.

Students learned concepts such as food webs, soil systems, energy transfer, plant systems, water systems and the impact of human interaction on the environment.
