During the museum's Homeschool Science & Engineering Academy program in late November, students planted a variety of seeds, such as lettuce mix and basil, in preparation of growing them inside the museum's new HYVE LF-ONE hydroponic growth system. During today's program, students checked in on the status of the growth and were not disappointed!
The museum's hydroponic growth system allows users to grow plants indoors year-round without the need for soil. Because soil is not used, the system requires significantly less water to grow plants. While the system is currently being used by our homeschool students, it will be available for on-site programs with interested school groups in the near future.
