SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Several Wisconsin high schools are building greenhouses to help teach students about aquaponics and sustainable agriculture.
Sheboygan Press Media reports (http://shebpr.es/1mq8J7W ) at least four high schools in eastern Wisconsin have built or are in the process of building facilities that can cost as much as $6.5 million.
Kiel High School opened an Agricultural Research Center in September. Sheboygan Falls also has a new greenhouse, and Plymouth and Elkhart Lake-Glenbeaulah high schools have projects in the works.
Plymouth Superintendent Carrie Dassow says the planned 5,100-square-foot Food Science and Agriculture Center will allow students to learn about engineering, food and agriculture. She says it will be beneficial whether they are going on to college, a technical school or work.
