No soil, no problem! Just 5 days ago during the museum's Homeschool Science & Engineering Academy, students planted a variety of seeds, such as lettuce mix and basil, using the museum's new HYVE LF-ONE hydroponic growth system. Today, we have sprouts!
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!
