The Greek word hydro means water and ponos means labor or work. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water without soil. The water must be enriched with nutrients and the plants need some type of inert medium to support the root system.
Hydroponics is applicable in many classroomsfrom kindergarten to college. Lessons that can be applied using a hydroponic system are:
Biology- understanding photosynthesis, experiments with pH and nutrients, microbes and root development, and light color spectrum effects.
Chemistry- Interaction of various nutrients, pH adjusting, and calculating ppm of nutrients.
History- Scientific pioneers of hydroponics and ancient civilizations that used hydroponics.
Math Business- Sell cuttings and seedlings for school fundraiser or economics project calculate cost to produce to set the selling price.
Geography- Research and grow plants from around the world.
Engineering Physics- System designs and capillary movement.
