AIS considers that aquaculture offers an effective tool for teaching science and an excellent vehicle for project-based learning (PBL). Aquaculture is interdisciplinary — understanding how it functions requires a grasp of applied skills in physics (like water flow), chemistry (water quality), and biology (fish and plants). The school has created a miniature aquafarm at Gate 9 to offer students a real-hand experience of the project. The in-house built model features farming of arugula and cucumber. However, aquafarming in principle involves farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other aquatic organisms. Applications to the project are limited to students imagination.

The project will be available for boys the Boys and Girls Section to explore. For further information, please contact your science teacher. You may also check the attached document for home projects.
