A visit to Xplore for Y5/Y6

Today we went to Xplore to learn all about Aquaponics.

Aquaponics is a sustainable way to grow food. It involves aquaculture and hydroponics in one integrated system. Basically, the waste produced by the fish feeds the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish, producing one continuous cycle.

We made our own aquaponic system and also we were allowed to explore all the amazing interactive exhibit space too. A great day!
