Soda Bottle Workshop at MS 217 in Queens

Engaged students learn about hyrdroponic systems

On Friday, March 25th, we packed up the van for it’s inaugural trip and headed to Queens to lead a Soda Bottle workshop at MS 217. It was their annual Family Science Night and we had the wonderful opportunity to teach the 6th graders about various hydroponic systems along with assisting the parents and their children in building their own self irrigated planting system. The kids at this green magnet school were very receptive to the projects and really enjoyed building the systems. The school provided them with basil and oregano seeds and in the next couple of weeks, they will be seeing their hydroponic systems growing delicious herbs on their windowsills!
