Explore 204: Hydroponic Garden

Reported by on 5/10/17

"They can feel it, they can taste it, they can smell it. You can see their faces light up. They love it." — Eric Havinga, teacher

One elementary school created a unique portable hydroponic garden to do interactive learning with students. The garden not only helps explain scientific concepts, but teaches students about nutritious food they can eat. Watching the growing cycle and having the food in their hands sparks questions that go beyond what is covered in the curriculum.

Watch Explore 204 to see students and their special garden.
