Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, the method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Students in advanced hydroponics will utilize Trinity High School’s LGM hydroponic growing unit. Students will monitor nutrient levels, water levels, and plant health as well as conduct water quality tests. Students will learn now to calibrate pH, conductivity, and temperature. They will be required to conduct independent research using the LGM and well keep accurate records of data collections. Students will also participate in starting plants from seeds, transplant seedlings, and harvesting mature plants for consumption.
