Solar Suitcase Project

Green Tech Students are taught the core element of “Going Green” is to improve health conditions for all humans sharing the earth. Our goal is to develop sustainable communities and provide a cleaner environment through smart, social, economic and human development strategies.

The Solar Suitcase is a portable photovoltaic lighting system, powerful enough to illuminate a small room. The project seeks to give Green Tech students an opportunity to learn how to develop solar energy, provide light and serve as humanitarians.

Aquaponics

Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture, (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks), with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrogen-fixing bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system.
