Aquaponics 101 Workshop

203 Swingle Hall, Auburn University, AL 36849

This 5-day professional development workshop is designed for formal and informal educators that would like to integrate aquaponics into their curriculum. The workshop is geared to middle and high school teachers, but adventurous elementary and pre-service teachers are welcome. Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, the growing of plants without soil. The fish and plants form a symbiotic relationship where the fish provide nutrients for the plants and the plants help clean the water for the fish. Classrooms across the country incorporate aquaponics to engage students and teachers in real world applications of chemistry, biology, math and agriculture science.

The workshop provides professional development credit (32 hrs) and hands-on opportunities to build small aquaponics systems and interact with aquaponics experts. Topics covered at the workshop include integrating plant and fish culture, the nitrogen cycle, water quality, components of a recirculating aquaculture system, plant and fish selection, plant and fish disease and pest management and many others. Attendees will have the opportunity to design and build an entire aquaponics system that they will be able to take back to their schools.
