Home Hydroponic Kits: LAST CALL for FALL ORDERS
Our new Home Hydroponic Kits have been a terrific success and we only have a few more available for the fall semester. If your school is interested in purchasing some for the fall, please sign up here by November 30: Fall Home Hydroponic Kit Request Form.
But don’t worry! Our team will be putting together more kits in January for spring courses! A new Spring Request form will be posted in December.
Kits have been used in K-12th grade – primarily for at-home remote learning, but also in the classroom when students aren’t able to visit the hydroponic lab due to social distancing requirements. Some new schools that do not yet have a greenhouse classroom have also been able to use the Kits and stand-alone curriculum, and we are excited to begin this new type of partnership.
The NY Sun Works Home Hydroponic Kits enable students, with teacher guidance, to grow, study, and run investigations with plants from home or in the classroom. The lessons, in combination with the kits, aim to introduce students to topics they would otherwise be learning about in their Greenhouse Classrooms. The Kit and lessons are intentionally designed to create flexibility for teachers to bolster and incorporate content of the courses that are already being taught (such as Living Environment, AP Biology and AP Environmental Science at the high school level). Each lesson is accompanied by a student-facing Google Slides presentation.
