We recently posted the new Hydroponic Grow Center on our 21st Century Classroom Pinterest board, and it has gotten a lot of attention by teachers looking for classroom gardening ideas and DIY plant enthusiasts. Get started in your classroom now and by next Saint Patrick’s Day you could be growing your own shamrocks!
Hydroponics and Aquaponics are gaining popularity and more schools are deploying food production and agricultural technology courses in the vocational programs as these career fields are expanding. The new Hydroponic Grow Center by Diversified Woodcrafts makes it easy to integrate soil-less growing projects into existing science and botany classrooms by providing a complete kit.
This is a self contained ebb and flow hydroponics growing system. The perfect way to learn how plants can grow without soil and helps teach the basic concepts for the plants needs, nutrition, food production, recycling, agricultural technology and soil-less growing environments.
This mobile hydroponics system has everything you need to get started, including grow lights and water pump. The adjustable timers enable you to grow your plants with the perfect amount of water and sunlight. The construction allows easy access for students and teachers alike.
The classroom growing center is made of solid maple and maple veneers. There is a containment plant tray, a 25 gallon nutrient reservoir with lid, a locked cabinet for timers and air pump, and a 150 watt grow light. The growing system is completed with a submersible pump, an air pump, an air stone, (2) timers, hoses and 8″ net pots. The unit moves easily on 4″ locking, leveling casters.
While we can’t guarantee you’ll grow a lucky four leaf clover, we feel confident that you will at least be able to grow some healthy, green, shamrocks. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
