Ponaganset's Greenhouse Displayed at The Home Show!
Posted on 04/05/2018


Ponaganset High School’s Materials and Manufacturing students are Collaborating with Ponaganset Plant Science students to build and deliver a greenhouse to the 2018 Rhode Island Home Show.  Students from both the Manufacturing Pathway and the Plant Science Pathway worked together to design a modular greenhouse. Students in the Materials and Manufacturing Pathway have been building a greenhouse for the past three months. On Monday, April 2 the students setup the greenhouse to be displayed at the 2018 Rhode Island Home Show in the Rhode Island Convention Center.  The Greenhouse will be viewed by over 20,000 people that will attend the Home Show on April 5, 6, 7, & 8. Although a final resting place has not been fully determined, the students would like to make the greenhouse available to young students of our elementary schools.  

This project has exposed several Ponaganset students to the Workforce Development Skills needed in today's growing demand for skilled workers.  Students get to experience several different in-demand careers throughout the process of designing, building, and setting up the greenhouse. Come visit our Greenhouse at the RI Convention Center, April 5, 6, 7, & 8th. Plants are being sold inside the Greenhouse. Hope to see you there!
