Blue Stream Farms is a project-based learning platform that, according to officials, will serve as apprenticeships, providing students with a strong advantage and help them take their next step in life.
“Currently seven high schools have offered letters of support to Blue Stream Farms with four of those high schools actively participating in projects. These projects align with classes the students are taking and are in a discipline they are considering majoring in when they go to college,” Doug Velegol, an advisor of the organization, explained.
Blue Stream Farms uses aquaponics to integrate science, technology, writing, engineering, arts and math into projects that not only help the students’ understanding of the subject, but also helps to operate and sustain the business. It also incorporates technology that will provide high definition images for research, data for business analytics and the ability to remotely control operating parameters of the system.
