    Hydroponics at Goosehill

    Library Media Specialist Marissa Urso has set up a hydroponics tower in the Creative Learning Lab (CLL) at Goosehill. To these students in Ms. DeRopp’s class, it may look a little like Jack’s giant bean stalk watching these roots take flight into abundant plants. Hydroponics is the technique of growing plants using a water-based nutrient solution rather than soil. During this science lesson, Ms. Urso shared a Venn diagram showing the differences between plants that grow in nature vs. hydroponics.
