Food Nutrient

AP Environmental Science students at D.W. Daniel High are partnering with Clemson University’s Foods Department and Clemson Extension to study ¬†Aquaponics in the classroom!

Students are raising Koi fish, basil and spinach plants in a mostly closed-loop system. The fish provide nutrients, the plants clean the water and the students are learning about foodborne illnesses, clean management of food production, and will even “taste-test” the produce in recipes in January 2018.

Thank you to Clemson University’s Kimberly Baker and Dr. Lance Beecher.
