Aquaponics System Project For A Montessori Preschool

Location: Mont Kiara, Selangor, Malaysia.

On 12th May, we received a call from a lady who were willing to donate 1 set of Aquaponics System to her son's preschool for the children to learn about food system and environment. 

The next morning, we went for site visit to understand that situation. The teacher from the school told us that they hope to convert the vacant space showed in the photo below to a place for children to learn about aquaponics and have fun with the fishes.

We set out to work on the design by applying our Aquaponics VT4 module system for create a L-shape Aquaponics system that combines growbed and Vertical farming concept which allows plants to grow at the growbed and leafy vegetables at the vertical farming module. Both modular system are connected to share the same nutrient rich water from the fish tank, we named it as mini Decoupled Aquaponics design concept. Decoupled Aquaponics design will allow higher flexibility in term of operation, both modular system can run independently in certain requirement scenario.

Work done and start to fill up the fish tank with water, everything went well as planned. We completed this project during the school holiday and we could imagine how excited they will be when they see the fish once they come back from the holiday.

We had a small opening ceremony and brief to the students on what Aquaponics is all about and tell them the do & don’t. We explained to them their responsibility on the system.

Now, the system is working well with fishes and vegetables that have just been transplanted by the children. We will wait for another month to see what happens. The children looked forward to what will happen next.
