Aquaculture, or farming in the water, is one of the most engaging topics you can cover in a science classroom. If you start to introduce aquaculture systems and learning into your science classroom, you will be amazed at the engagement from students from all types of backgrounds, and how it can connect to chemistry, biology, physics, computer science, engineering and more. In this session you will learn lots and get to participate in fun activities! We'll cover the importance of aquaculture globally and regionally, dive into some hands on lesson plan ideas, and provide a suite of resources including a free curriculum, an invite into an aquaculture teacher network, and the chance to participate in the competitive aquaculture challenge.
