Our virtual Go Green “Creativity In Bloom” project is going on now at www.chbloom.org. We are so excited to see these amazing entries, their stories and videos/pictures, and are again encouraged by the collective creativity and impact of community participation! Please join our efforts and vote for your favorite STEAM projects (built when stuck at home) at www.chbloom.org. Thank you for your support!
Thanks so much for your encouragement! We have actually received inquiries about possible arrangements for allowing people to see the real work products. Depending upon the reopen situation, we are trying to work out a feasible plan with local library, mall or a public venue which can be safe and accessible. In the meantime, we continue to engage the community through online events. Building upon the success and connections of Creativity In Bloom, we will soon launch our virtual summer programs. Thank you and we look forward to sharing more projects!
Wonderful idea! This seems like a very well thought out and timely executed solution to a major problem in our current society! The incorporation of experimentation, effective marketing, and usage of natural resources are all wonderful aspects which help solidify this project’s viability in helping solve water scarcity. I am wondering though, with the sponges, nutrients, and the pod, what is the approximate lifetime of this product? Are the pods easily replaceable or does the reliance on simple osmosis make these pods suitable for growth for long periods of time? The use of the engineering design process is incredible and I hope that further outreach and usage of the water pods can help decrease water usage and make our planet a greener place. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to successful development of Aqua Pod!
