In Food, Land, and You, a group will soon begin construction on an IBC tote to grow Tilapia and leafy greens to illustrate the nitrogen cycle. We're researching options on line and are excited to get started!
The 7th graders are currently doing a unit on bacteria and viruses. We sampled some areas from around the classroom to grow a variety of bacteria colonies. We also are trying to see whether or not certain spices will inhibit bacteria growth from a sample taken from Mr. DeVoe's face! Here, students sterilize their inoculation loops for sampling.
