Wilson’s World: Learning About Aquaponics at Walter G. Byers School

May 20, 2019
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Wilson was with students, teachers and Principle Anthony Calloway of Walter G. Byers School in Charlotte where he was learning more about their aquaponics science experiment.

The students explained to Wilson how the aquaponics system works using nitrates produced by the fish in their fish tank to grow plants to provide food.  The kids even gave us a look at how they transfer fish to the fish tank to provide the nitrates needed for growing the food.

Kerrie Lalli,  K-8 STEM Lab teacher, talked with Wilson about the excitement of teaching science and engineering to the kids and seeing how their creativity comes alive as they learn.
