Hydroponics at LPA
During British Science week small groups of children in years 4 - 6 worked on an exciting project focused on innovative approaches to growing plants, with the aim of showing that science and technology is relevant in all of our lives and accessible to all.
Using a British Science Association grant we purchased some hydroponics kits and the children learnt about how this system can potentially allow us to grow fruit and vegetables in smaller spaces, indoors and even all year round! We looked at some amazing futuristic designs for hydroponic gardens and talked about how this technology could impact on the future of our planet, reduce damage to the environment and provide food for a growing world population. Our kits are all set up and we are eagerly waiting for our strawberries, peppers, basil and lettuce to grow.
