LEGO team - visit to the Liverpool Life Sciences UTC

Today, the LEGO team visited the Liverpool Life Sciences University Technology College to work alongside the team from Farm Urban, who are bio-scientists concerned with how we farm our food, particularly in urban areas.  

 

The team members were able to see first hand the different ways that Farm Urban grow using innovative farming techniques and even got to build their own aquaponics system by themselves.  

 

They learned so much from the experience, with many thanks for Jayne Goss (Operations Manager), Dr. Jens Thomas (co-founder of Farm Urban) and Lawrence Anderson (resident Farm Urban Ph.D student) for all their help and for containing the enthusiasm of the LEGO team.

 

The team will now use their knowledge to build their own aquaponics system at school to see if we can become urban farmers too, whilst reducing the amount of water needed to go crops.
