Adelphoi Launches “Watch Us Grow” Program With Hydropods

With the generous support of The Grable Foundation, Adelphoi has launched the Watch Us Grow project. This grant permitted us to partner with Green Our Planet to build hydroponic growing systems that offer an innovative way to engage students in agriculture while exploring STEAM concepts at four of our education sites.

Our vast experience demonstrates that the majority of youth served by Adelphoi are tactile learners who thrive in environments where their hands-on actions produce immediate, measurable results. The kind of opportunities offered through this project provides our youth with the opportunity to experience achievements that they find so difficult to attain in a traditional classroom setting.

This specific project has enhanced our existing programming through reinforcement of STEAM concepts in a unique learning environment where our students benefit from hands-on experiences and gain a variety of transferable skills.
