HU will offer a week-long in-person camp designed to educate students about aquaponics. Aquaponics is a growing plant method that uses nutrient-rich water from aquaculture as the source of nutrients. The recirculating aquaculture system located within the greenhouse at Steelton-Highspire School District (SHSD) will serve as a living laboratory where students will explore biology, plant propagation, water chemistry, engineering design, and aquaculture practices.
Note: Students should wear closed-toe shoes and encourage dressing comfortably for a greenhouse environment that can be quite warm. We would recommend shorts and a t-shirt!
