Georgetown student Sarah Harper is constructing an aquaponics system in the Maker Hub space of the university library.
She constructed a model out of Legos, and said that this helped her visualize how the system would work.
It will have a 40-gallon fish tank, and cycle water up to a hydroponic grow tray. The tray will be filled with hydroponic media, and net pots to hold individual plants.
Anacostia Aquaponics helped Sarah with the project as part of our Partnership Program. We’ll check back in once they have fish and plants growing.
Great job Sarah!
