    Our library is a place where you can find books to read for enjoyment, information to help you learn & grow your brain, and new technology to explore. Plan to learn a lot about science, as well! We will be raising rainbow trout from eggs to fry and conducting our own experiments with our aquaponics system.

    Elms Elementary School has an aquaponics garden next to the IMC.  To see more photos, or to see a list of electronic books about plants, fish, and ecocystems, please click here.

     

    Our tank now has goldfish and koi. These fish will fertilize our plants. We will share our harvest with our school community as we learn about farming, plant growth, fish, ecosystems, and sustainablity.
