ACRE Wetland

ACRE Wetland houses a plethora of native plant species. The wetland however, is overgrown with plant invasive species, making it difficult to open the wetland for educational opportunities. The team aims to build a trail system, eradicate plant invasive species and put up interactive signage along the trail. All this is done so we many educate students at local K-12 community schools/Purdue about wetland conservation.

Hydroponics

Hydroponics was working with Lafayette Habitat for Humanity and is now working with the Imagination Station in Lafayette (since Spring 2017). The goal of this project is to build several small scale hydroponic systems as part of a general hydroponics display. Along with the systems, there will be educational materials and a build station where children can build their own wick system. These hydroponic systems will be used to educate the local community on the methods of hydroponic growing.
