Since 2013, we’ve had the absolute privilege of working with students from one of Victoria’s coolest high schools- the Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry; the school is focussed on student-centered learning and emergent curriculum. Awesome. PSII students have been hanging out in our workshop, working with our engineering team on a variety of projects.They recently completed a customize-able doorbell using an arduino. Cool, right? It’s get better. Right now they are working a networked, remote control aquaponics greenhouse system for Mason St Farm. Basically, that means putting fish tanks and greens in a greenhouse together, in a soil-free, mostly closed system that is super efficient and nutrient rich. And what is Mason Street Farm? It’s a super rad urban farm and green space education centre- located right downtown!
We are SO stoked to be working with two such innovative and positive local organizations. Victoria gets increased food security, Mason Street Farm gets a top-end aquaponics system, PSII students get to learn about tech AND farming, and we get to dip our toes in to every little bit of it!
Did I mention that we are stoked? We are. Thanks for being awesome, Victoria.
