Technologies of delight » Naturescape

The place is called Naturescape, free and right in the heart of Perth’s Kings Park. It is an impressive place with a particularly impressive (if not obvious) feature – its design was based on extensive survey of kids. What did the kids want? Dirt, water, sticks, rocks, stuff to climb, stuff to build, to craft and move.

Aquaponic Farming: A Systems and Global Engineering Project

Aquaponic Farming: A Systems and Global Engineering Project | Earth-Environmental Science | Scoop.it

"Students are challenged to think critically and creatively about the technological and environmental issues involved in this project. As a participant in this project, students around the world will collaborate to design an aquaponics system that sustains fish and plants to be delivered to a developing country along with a media/education kit and materials for educating the new owners of the system. Each participating class will contribute to a Systems Requirements Document that describes the needs and requirements of the aquaponics system and then design a specific designated subsystem. One or more of the participating classes will produce the final aquaponics system based on the detailed subsystem designs supplied by all project participants."

 

For those interested in learning more about aquaponics and it's potential to produce healthy pesticide-free food while conserving land, soil and water, check out my other scoop.it website at:

The Known Universe by AMNH

Similar to the Powers of Ten, the American Museum of Natural History used modern technology to map out the Known Macroscopic Universe.  

 

From the website:  "The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History."
