Game Bird Brooding, and Growing Trailer

Alternative Learning Center School

‚ÄčThe purpose of this project is to explore the inter-relationships between all disciplines of science.  The students will be involved in the building and maintaining of an ecological system.  A trailer will be built that has a water capture and circulation system, solar panels and batteries to generate electricity, and growing beds.  It will house approximately 24 to 36 birds that vary from chickens and ducks, to game birds such as pheasants.  This project will incorporate physics, biology and chemistry.  This project will be an ongoing and a part of every year's classes.  Long term results are to be able to grow and maintain a population of birds from nest and eggs to the adult stages of life.
