It's better to have seen and heard of it than to have personally operated it. With the complete independence of labor courses from the original comprehensive practical activity courses, primary and secondary schools in various regions have established different types of centralized labor practice bases. The hydroponic classroom is a popular hydroponic research base in recent years. It allows children to maintain and develop a thirst for knowledge and exploration of nature through observation, discovery, recording, and discussion, making the labor experience more interesting.
Hydroponics, also known as soilless cultivation, is an agricultural production technique that involves using nutrient solutions and supporting facilities instead of soil. As an important part of implementing "green education" in schools, conducting hydroponic education in schools not only provides students with an opportunity to get close to green planting, experience modern agriculture, and increase their abilities and skills, but also allows them to truly experience the joy of dedication, success, and harvest in activities. After understanding the hydroponic classroom, how to build one has become a top priority.
The most important thing to build a hydroponic classroom is to choose hydroponic planting equipment, among which there are many devices that can be used as hydroponic classrooms. The hydroponic tower system allows plants to grow without the need for soil, saving space and reducing resource investment. Especially with rotating columns, plants can receive even light and be more aesthetically pleasing to view. The NFT hydroponic system uses a flat channel with nutrient flow to plant plants in the form of a thin film at the bottom of the channel. The NFT system can maintain maximum oxygen exposure and sufficient nutrient supply at the roots of plants, providing ideal growth conditions for plants.
Here, we will focus on introducing the ZIP hydroponic system, which is one of the highly efficient three-dimensional planting systems. Especially suitable for indoor and large-scale planting with insufficient planting space, the ZIP system is also very suitable for hydroponic classrooms. The ZIP system has wheels at the bottom that allow for flexible movement, and vegetables will look beautiful when they are ripe. The double-sided ZIP system is one of the ZIP systems that can be planted on both sides, and is also equipped with LED plant growth lights to ensure high yield and quality of crops. It can be used to cultivate a wide range of crop types, such as flowers, leafy vegetables, and strawberries.
In addition to being applicable in hydroponic classrooms, the ZIP system is also widely used in container farms, vertical farms, and greenhouses. Children can earnestly learn the theoretical knowledge of soilless cultivation, understand the planting techniques of soilless cultivation, observe and learn to use hydroponic devices on site through the hydroponic classroom. This is more interesting than traditional labor practice activities, and it can also plant the seeds of environmental protection and resource conservation in children's hearts from a young age.
