How can we use nature and technology for creating a better education?

Crofters, a sustainability IoT startup based in Chennai have come up with a live ecosystem that combines the science of Aquaponics and Technology, as a solution to bring lessons to life.

At Crofters, we believe in do and learn approach. We hope that as the kids spend more time with the ecosystem, they will be able to perform all the activities designed associated with it independently. And, we take it on us to support the school during the entire tenure to implement the curriculum, to improve the Student Learning Outcome of each and every Child of that school.

Aquaponics is a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic creatures supplies the nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purify the water.
With Crofters ecosystem as a part of their curriculum, students will be able to witness for themselves how science and agriculture are intertwined with each other. Starting with the food chain phenomenon, the Crofters ecosystem is composed in itself with various fields of science and technology, and the scope of education through the system is immense. It will be a great experience for both the student and the faculty in such a less explored field with great technology and also increase their environmental awareness.

As the first step towards our vision to redefine the education system, we have installed our Ecosystem at the Government Higher Secondary School Kodambakkam with our entire curriculum to benefit more than 200 students.

Every ecosystem is handcrafted by us and takes 21 days to manufacture, costs over INR 22,000 and so, to fulfil our vision; we would need your financial support to install the ecosystem successfully in Government school and low-income private schools.
