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.
