Educational Greenhouses are tools for learning

Educational greenhouses are typically found on the campuses of colleges and universities. As popularity grows, many high schools and even primary schools have witnessed the addition of greenhouses to their locations.

Although educational greenhouses are typically found on the campuses of colleges and universities, high schools and primary schools are also beginning to understand the unique learning opportunities they can provide by adding a greenhouse to their campus. Many schools have completed the replacement of their aging greenhouses with Solar Innovations, Inc.’s high performance systems.

Greenhouses provide students a unique opportunity to study horticulture first hand. Universities often conduct studies on plant growth, pesticides, and genetics, while vocational schools may propagate plants for landscaping course work. Elementary schools often utilize greenhouses to expose students to starting seeds and raising butterflies.

Most schools choose to implement an environmental control system so that plants can receive proper care through automated processes, which saves time and energy.
