MAHS Receives $5,000 Grant to Start Aquaponic Farm

Aquatic Farm

Moon Area High School was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from the National Education Association (NEA) Foundation to start an aquaponic farm. 

The purpose of the grant is to allow Invention Lab students to design, manufacture, and maintain the aqua pond and then for the Life Skills students to develop work skills by growing produce and fish. 

The aqua pond will also be available to the science teachers to develop lessons for hands-on learning opportunities. 

High school teachers Mr. James Petrina, Ms. Kate Robson, Ms. Sarah Knaus, and Mrs. Diane Corsi will oversee the aqua farm initiative.
