We will continue with our aquaponics set ups if they are viable this week (fingers crossed), but if they are working the tanks will need little maintenance so we will proceed with the next project in either case.
Tuesday, we will begin research for our next project: build a working model of a heart. These do not have to look like a heart, but must function as a heart.
