Spotlight on Oshkosh North High School Aquaponics

Posted by Chris Michael on August 12, 2013

Bright Agrotech Spotlight Series

Our Spotlight Series seeks to highlight innovative and creative projects in aquaponics, vertical farming and sustainable agriculture. A few times a month we'll be featuring these types of projects on both our blog and YouTube channel.


Spotlight on Oshkosh North High School

For our first ever Spotlight Series video, we wanted to give a special shout out to the hard working students of Oshkosh North High School.

At Bright Agrotech, we’re excited about the future of aquaponics and the potential it has to change our food system for the better.

What’s really exciting though is that there are many groups out there that are just as enthusiastic about moving aquaponics forward and creating a bright food future, even some student groups!

Under the leadership of Oliver Schinkten, a long-time proponent of hydroponics and aquaponics alike, the students of Oshkosh North High School have been working tirelessly on their aquaponics build.

Check out the video for more and look for updates on this high school aquaponics project!

High School Aquaponics?

Let’s face it… Aquaponics can be a frustrating, confusing and at times painful journey/hobby/business.

While it’s getting easier with the advent of quality, tested and open-source information, the fact is that one needs some serious motivation and determination in order to be successful in aquaponics.

Mr. Schinkten’s students at Oshkosh North High School, have demonstrated a passionate determination to grow their aquaponic system into more than just a school project!

We're excited for updates on this high school aquaponics project and we'll be sure to keep you updated as well!
