EPICS Hydroponics Team

This team is developing an automated, low-cost, and high-yield hydroponic system to be implemented in community centers in Indiana through our partners at the Marion County Farm Bureau (MCFB) and the Felege Hiywot Center (FHC). Our project aims to address and help address the issues of food-insecurity and food-deserts that exist in these communities by growing fresh produce that may not be available in those areas as well as provide hands-on engineering education to students in those urban areas.
