Over the course of the fourth semester we built an aquaponics system. It combines aquaculture and hydroponics. That basically means that plants, fish and bacteria serve and depend on each other.

The installation is located next to a MakerSpace. We hope to raise awareness for sustainable gardening.

To make the system accessible to others we chose parts and
materials that are very easy to source.

The project ist still work in progress. We‘re aiming for a further more automated system by installing various sensors, a raspberry pie and servomotors.

We are currently working on an app for monitoring certain parameters of the system.
