RHS JROTC Awards
To share some year-end results as we just got back from our District Awards ceremony.
In addition to cadet of the year and runner up this year the Hornet Battalion got word today they scored above a 96 on our inspection this year earning the Honor Unit with Distinction. This is the big inspection we get once every three to four years. Furthermore this is the new inspection system in which the mark for HUD was raised from scoring a 90 to scoring a 96. Across the board, everyone was advised not to expect to achieve HUD with the new system. The kids hit it out of the park.
Also, to add on—the Hornet Battalion was awarded the academic streamer for the top Battalion in the District with JROTC academics.
…still not done…next step the leadership team competing at nationals in Washington DC the end of June.
Mr. Bishop’s Engineering Concepts class built an Aquaponics System as a class project.
Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture (farmed fish) and hydroponics (plants grown in a water/nutrient solution) In aquaponics, fish waste provides a nutrient source for the growing plants and the plants provide a natural water filter for the fish. This creates a mini ecosystem where both plants and fish can thrive. Aquaponics is the ideal answer to a fish farmer’s problem of disposing of nutrient rich water and a hydroponic growers need for nutrient rich water. This system only requires the input of water to compensate for evaporation, and food for the fish. The class choose gold fish as the aquaculture component and basil and dill as the hydroponic component. In a scaled up system, larger fish such as tilapia, trout or crappie could be used, as well as larger plants such as tomatoes or lettuce. When the plants are grown, they will be donated to the Foods and Nutrition to use in the cooking class. The fish will remain fish.
