农业生物技术实验室项目(Agriculture Biotechnology Laboratory Program)

The Agriculture Biotechnology Laboratory is a green roof project located on the roof of the camp’s cafeteria. It has been designed as a nationwide replicable resource for STEM Education for K-12 institutions. Everything in this lab is based on soilless technologies: soilless substrates, hydroponics, aeroponics, aquaculture, and aquaponics.

在营地的自助餐厅的屋顶上有一个绿色屋顶,这里就是农业生物技术实验室(Agriculture Biotechnology Laboratory)。这个项目设计的目的是将其作为小学和中学(K-12 institutions)的科学和数理化(STEM Education, 包含Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)教育的全国样板。这个屋顶实验室的每样东西都是基于无土栽培技术:无土基质(soilless substrates)、水培(hydroponics)、空气栽培(aeroponics)、水产养殖(aquaculture)以及结合了水培和水产养殖的方法叫做水培养殖法(Aquaponics)。

The idea came after a recent University of Puerto Rico study revealed that PR is importing over 85% of its fresh foods which travel anywhere from 1,287 miles (5 days travel time) up to 10,627 miles (29 days travel time), not considering the time from harvest, maintaining Puerto Rico’s food security at risk. Also, an additional concern is not whether Puerto Rico has the ability to have access to adequate amounts of food, but if Puerto Rico is having access to nutritional foods since there is a correlation between distance and time of harvest with the loss of nutritional value of fresh foods grown far away and time spent in its transportation.
波多黎各大学的一份研究显示,在这个国家总共有85%的新鲜食物需要从很远的地方进口,这些食品需要在海上运输1287-10627英里的距离,需要5-29天的时间。这还不包括收购所花费的时间,这样就让这个国家的食品安全产生了严重隐患。因此,人们产生了建立这个示范实验室的主意。另外人们还有一个担心,不是担心将来有一天波多黎各可能无法获得足够的食品,而是担心波多黎各能否获得有营养的食品。因为食品的收购时间和距离与这些新鲜食品的营养价值之间是有联系的。在很远的地方生产的食品加上长时间的运输后会造成其营养价值的降低。

The lab allows an integration to the school’s summer camps, Camp Mabo/
Sound of Music, in order to enhance knowledge of issues related to Puerto Rico’s
Global Food Security, Climate Change and Childhood Obesity through a nutrition and fitness program at camp. Campers also learn the basic concepts of soilless technologies under a perfect scenario for hands on, real life experiences in a living laboratory.
这个实验室能够整合进学校的夏令营,也就是MABO夏令营/音乐之声的活动里,通过一个以营养和健康为主题的营地项目,以便大家能够增强关于波多黎各的普遍性食品安全、气候变化和儿童肥胖症方面的知识。参加夏令营的学生还可以学习基本的关于无土培养的技术,而且整个过程都是在一个生机盎然的屋顶实验室亲自动手操作。
