NC Cooperative Extension Aquaponics Shortcourse Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension DoubleTree by Hilton New Bern - Riverfront
— 22 hours away

Aquaponic systems are becoming increasingly popular, and more people are finding innovative ways to produce more than one crop in their recirculating systems. Aquaponic systems are recirculating aquaculture systems that incorporate the production of plants without soil. In typical recirculating aquaculture systems, the goal is to produce large quantities of aquatic biomass in small amounts of space and small volumes of water. In such a system, waste products can accumulate if not physically removed or otherwise filtered via mechanical or biological means. The organic buildup and metabolic byproducts can be reused in aquaponic system by a secondary crop; plants. Plants can grow rapidly with dissolved nutrients that are excreted directly by the aquatic species or generated from the microbial breakdown of the animal waste by the various species of bacteria in the system. In closed recirculating systems with very little daily water exchange, dissolved nutrients accumulate in concentrations similar to those in hydroponic nutrient solutions. These dissolved waste nutrients are taken up by the plants, reducing wastewater discharge to the surrounding watershed and allowing for more efficient use of the fish feed.

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an interdisciplinary environmental education program designed for educators of ANY background. The hands-on activities facilitate the exploration of topics including communication, economics, energy and fuels, geology, government, history, recycling, transportation, watersheds, wildlife, and much more! Participants will learn about the materials through direct engagement in the PLT activities throughout the workshop.

Differentiated instruction? Technology connections? Literature links? STEM? The PLT activity guide covers it all!!! The PreK-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies). CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program. Registered Foresters can earn 3.0 CFEs in Criteria I and 3.0 CFEs in Criteria II [ProNR] by participating in this workshop.

Workshop materials are provided at no cost to participants through partnership with the NC Forestry Association, however, pre-registration is required. Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. If you must cancel, please do so in a timely manner so someone else may take your place in the workshop.
