(Jackson, Kentucky) – Cathy McCune had her students designing and building Hydroponic systems in Breathitt County.  While she originally thought this would be a good way for students to observe grow systems, the project blossomed in to a full fledged learning experience.  Student teams researched possible systems.  Designed their own systems.  Presented their concepts in a classroom competition.  Drew up specifications, constructed, ran, failed, and tried again.

It is amazing what a little plastic pipe, water and imagination can become.  We sat down with Mrs. McCune to discuss the project and student learning.
