Today's Quote:


Countdown to Vacation!

NOTE: I will be out Thursday and Friday of this week.

Recap:

8th Grade honors worked hard to get caught up and we're almost there! 2nd period finally got to do the decomposition reaction we have been trying to get to but seemed to keep getting bumped for other school business and 1st period took their 3rd FCA in place of the original test. 

7th Grade honors is now working on their chicken wing dissection and exploring the phylogenetic comparisons between it and the human arm. We should finish up both these activities this week.

5th period physical science took the chapter benchmark test and 6th period began the density lab.

Brain Bender:

10, 4, 3, 11, 15...

  1. 14
  2. 1
  3. 17
  4. 12

Aquaculture

We've begun construction on our new greehouse and additional towers. When we are done we will be growing alost 5000 crops! Our 4th fish farm should arrive today which will expand our capacity in that area too.









This past weekend Aquaponics did its part to help protect the oceans by donating a weeks worth of harvested produce to Sea Shepherd Conservation. Their newest ship, the Farley Mowat was in port in Tampa so we delivered our produce, got a tour of the ship, met the crew, and got a Sea Shepherd flag to fly over the farm. The ship's crew was grateful and explained that they were heading into the Sea of Cortez to protect the extremely endangered Vaquita Dolphin. There are only an estimated 90 surviving members of this species and only 25 of them are breeding age females.
