2022 Aquaponics 101 Workshop for Educators

E.W. Shell Fisheries Research Center, 2101 North College Street Auburn AL, 36830

This 5-day professional development workshop is designed for teachers 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. For additional information please see the attached document or contact us.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made more than 14 days in advance receive a full refund minus $25 processing fee. Cancellations 3 days to 14 days in advance receive a 50% refund and cancellations less than 3 days in advance or no-shows will not receive a refund.

Breast Feeeing Friendly Childcare Certification

Online

Who Can Participate
All child care providers, including home-based, center-based, licensed or license-exempt may apply for this certification.

In addition to providing the toolkit detailing the 5 requirements and providing resources for the providers to achieve each step, Extension plans to provide technical assistance along the way to help all interested providers reach certification.

How it Works
The certification process includes a two-hour training conducted by an Extension regional agent. Following the training, interested providers must implement the 5 Requirements for Becoming Breastfeeding Friendly. Participants will receive a toolkit that guides them through the process and also provides resources and tips for each step.

Upon completion of the 5 requirements, providers will submit an application for a site visit. An Extension regional agent will conduct the visit to determine if the providers are successfully implementing the required changes.

Certification will be good for two years. Multiple websites will host the names of certified providers including the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama Breastfeeding Committee.

Why Be Certified?
Infants who receive breastmilk have a reduced risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Infants who receive breastmilk have stronger immune systems and get sick less often.
Your child care program’s commitment to providing breastfeeding support can help provide the best start in life for infants.
Participation can provide marketing benefits for your child care program.
Breastmilk is a reimbursable meal component if your program participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

2022 Aquaponics 101 Workshop for Educators

E.W. Shell Fisheries Research Center, 2101 North College Street Auburn AL, 36830

This 5-day professional development workshop is designed for teachers 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. For additional information please see the attached document or contact us.
