Several Wisconsin high schools are building greenhouses to help teach students about aquaponics and sustainable agriculture.

Sheboygan Press Media reports at least four high schools in eastern Wisconsin have built or are in the process of building facilities that can cost as much as $6.5 million.

Kiel High School opened an Agricultural Research Center in September. Sheboygan Falls also has a new greenhouse, and Plymouth and Elkhart Lake-Glenbeaulah high schools have projects in the works.

Plymouth Superintendent Carrie Dassow says the planned 5,100-square-foot Food Science and Agriculture Center will allow students to learn about engineering, food and agriculture. She says it will be beneficial whether they are going on to college, a technical school or work.
