Teaching across the math and science courses students will build an indoor vertical growing system with a twist. In conjunction with Central State college students will be building an indoor growing sphere using a CNC machine and common shop tools. All aspects of the project are student driven with defined responsibilities: Foreman, botanist, culinary extension, QA, public relations, and documentarians. The completed products will include two large scale indoor grow spheres, a cookbook with a nutrition analysis to promote healthier eating and a documentary of the process.
