Science Alive visited Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and viewed their amazing hydroculture systems to get inspiration and see how a major facility manages their hydroculture gardens. they had systems that spanned multiple labs and areas, with diverse plants from all over the country being grown in their systems. Fairchild even has a program running tha6t partners with high schools to make gardens capable of being cultivated in space! Even NASA is partnered with the gardens to make the idea of gardening in space a reality, with multiple Astronaut teams taking these high school-made plant systems to outer space.

Science Alive visited the Frost Science Museum in Miami to get new ideas for our hydroculture gardens at Nova Blanche Foreman Elementary. An aspect of the museum that caught our attention were the giant hanging plant gardens that were attached to the ceilings in front of the museum. these garden systems got their water via a drip-feed water system. Another aspect of the museum (which we are now incorporating into the Science Alive program) are the bottle-growing plant kits we saw in the gift shop. We are going to take this idea and expand upon it further in upcoming events, and we cant wait to share what we have planned with the students!
