A teacher at King Science Center in Omaha is starting the new school year on a real high. She is being recognized by the EPA for her innovative approach to teach children about indoor aquaponics farming.
WOWT 6 News featured Kristine Denton in a story last February. She and her students raise, harvest, and then donate produce to a homeless shelter using aquaponics technology. The technology allows the growth of plants in a soilless environment with the use of a recirculating water system.
As a recipient of the EPA’s Presidential Innovation Awards for Environmental Educators, Denton will receive a plaque and $2,000 to further her education. The school will also receive $2,000 to continue programs like hers.
