Hydroponic prototype evaluation

After a few weeks of growing lettuce in the 7th Grade hydroponic prototypes, it was time to evaluate how the different models worked. Mrs. Rivers and Mr. Hartman took the classes out to the greenhouse to harvest a few choice leaves from each team’s crop to sample, then they did the hard work of drawing conclusions (the pros and the cons) from their ongoing observations in terms of plant growth, access to nutrients, mechanical success, etc.

After the three classes shared their evaluations, the next step was to select the models which would be built full size vertically in the green house. Stay tuned for that process coming up soon!
