When contemplating multiple concepts, I ended up deciding that my topic for my personal project is building and maintaining an aquaponics garden. An aquaponics garden is the combination of hydroponics and aquaculture. These terms simply refer to the soil-less growing of plants, and the raising and growing of fish in one system. Hydroponics and aquaculture combine together to creating a single, thriving ecosystem. Aquaculture raises the fish that eventually become large enough to be consumed by humans for nutritional value, and the gill-bearing aquatic animals provide the waste that the plants use as fertilizer.

He ended up pulling me into the task, and we thought of an aquaponics garden. We both were infatuated with the idea, having both a heavy interest in the science and agricultural field. The topic explored the depths of both of our minds and our interests. This influenced me by thinking of how I could modify this project. This time I would do it on my own and make a smaller model. Prior to creating my miniature model, I knew what materials would be needed. Also, the knowledge of how
