SWF utilizes Aquaponics and Urban Agriculture as amazing platforms to make 21st century skills and education ‘come to life’ for students of all ages. Our range of Aquaponics and Urban Agriculture system designs vary in size and scope to fit within the context of the classroom or even within a school greenhouse. As such, the beauty of our system designs is that they are adaptable, scalable, and can be made to fit the budget and personality of the individuals or groups creating them as they evolve over time . Particularly during the process of design and construction of aquaponics/hydroponics/UA systems, students are exposed to a wide array of career pathway opportunities (i.e. Biology, Botany, Construction, System Engineering, Plumbing, Electrical, Botany, Ichthyology, Architecture, etc.) while working with our teams. In turn, students are given the opportunity to transform each system over time in a manner which can directly reflect their various interests and inspirations. Through such flexibility, SWF utilizes Aquaponics and hydroponics as tools that can be used to empower the next generation of innovators and leaders.
