Aquaponics at MCT

MCT’s newest career & technical field is fueled by our growing concerns around food availability as the effects of climate change and years of unsustainable practices have become more apparent. In order to teach the valuable skills of sustainability, agricultural management, and biochemical systems thinking, MCT students designed and built one of DPS’ most ambitious gardening projects yet – AQUAPONICS!

Our vision is to empower our students to catalyze a neighborhood-based food system in the Montbello community that is healthy, equitable, and student-driven.

We look forward to incorporating more opportunities for our students to engage in S.T.E.M. projects, clubs and curriculum in the future!
