“When we partnered with TFFJ, it wasn’t just the science realm we wanted to touch on, but also technology, engineering and math. As part of their classes, students built the actual [growing systems] themselves. They helped with the engineering in regards to the design phase, weight limits and how all the pumps work. With Teens for Food Justice, you have not only the science of growing the food but students learn how to create the structures that will allow them to grow the food”
