Less Is More
How many hydroponic towers would it take to provide a side salad every day for each student in your school?
Run your calculations based on 10 plants per tower and 1 month from transplant to harvest. Assume that each harvested plant would provide enough for 2 side salads.
Using the calculations from the Intermediate Lesson, determine if your Lab is capable of that level of production. If not, how much additional space and extra towers would you need?
