ISSP [2011] : Soil-less Agriculture at the Wat Pathumwanaram School: Expansion through an Aeroponic Garden and Educational Material

The Wat Pathumwanaram School in Bangkok is developing its comprehensive soil-less agriculture program, which includes the development of an aeroponic garden. Design and construction of the garden allows the school to diversify its soil-less techniques andstrengthen its role as a demonstration school. Educational materials developed to incorporate active and visual teaching methods complement the school’s agricultural curriculum, and have the potential to provide students with a more practical understanding of soil-less agriculture. This document describes the engineering design and curriculum development processes used to expand the school’s program.
