All eyes on aquaponics


Rachel Hay, Staff Writer

Independent Research student Anne Wu (12) checks up on her and partner Jin Chen’s (12) independent research project, an aquaponics system that is now up and running in science teacher Eleonor Schneider’s room. “Although building the aquaponics system has been an incredible challenge, both Jin and I have learned a lot from it, especially the importance of collaboration and thorough research,” Wu said. Wu and Chen’s ultimate objective is to explore the potential of aquaponics to alleviate food and water shortages, and its potential to better people’s lives.
