15-year-old Erik Meike and Briana Das, along with their 12-year-old sisters Elise and Leona, wanted to create a “No-Touch Garden”. Calling themselves “Tribe Awesome” they started tinkering with hydroponics systems. Then they discovered aeroponics, garden tech tested by NASA on the space shuttle, and after “hours and hours” of research they created an aeroponics-in-a-bucket kit that any teen could learn to make. Aeroponics, like hydroponics, doesn’t use soil, but unlike hydroponics which floods the system with water every few minutes, aeroponics uses a fogger to mist the roots. The Tribe Awesome teens use an ultrasonic fogger (purchased for about $25 online) to deliver what they consider the exact micron-sized droplets for their plants’ roots. Combine the fogger with a $5 bucket, a bit of foam, water and some seedlings, and Tribe Awesome has what they consider future garden tech. tribeawesome.com Original story: 🤍faircompanies.com/videos/view/teens-create-automated-aeroponics-garden-kit-with-nasa-tech/
just watched your comparison of growing systems -amazing work
I'm so happy your thinking of the world. do you know if trees can be started in system & then transplanted. thx an keep it up
What exactly is the name of the fogger they are using to atomize the water. I was going to use a gravity system with a pump but I feel like the fog system in this video would be more efficient and also keep the humidity in my greenhouse high.
How much are those mist things and where do you buy? I'm in Australia! Well done kids great job 💪
I am searching everywhere for the thing they are using for the aeroponics and I can't find it anywhere on any site. How do I put what I need to set up my own aeroponics bucket?
How cool! Just think if everyone had a garden?
Thank you KD!
I wonder what these kewl human beings are doing now almost 8 years later!
All those roots look unhealthy, the whiter the better.
See how ur roots are all black n nasty looking thats why u don't let light or heat penetrate roots area
U need to black out the root zone make sure no.light is penetrating the root zone or root rot is gonna occur
It's so wonderful to see young people get excited about growing food in an efficient new way. Hats off to these young adults. The world is in safe hands with people like this!!
These teens are grown up now what is their followup garden NOW?
Thanks for story. i do different kind of aeroponics with different organic feeding.
Ancient Future Regenerative Gardens
they now grow weed in space for NASA and the astronauts on the ISS
Wow to think your the planets future! Great job guys really awesome stuff your putting together there.
I would love to know how to build all of the automated computer gadgets that you have built. I've seen it before and I just think it's the cats meow! To think your only young people. Seriously keep it up the world will be a better place for it
Not even teens, even more impressive
What is difference from any other clip in youtube
I realize this video was from 6 years ago, however, I would love to know more about the NASA built "Ultrasonic Fogger."
I would love an update on whether these kids are still at it, great work. Very inspiring.
The ultrasonic atomizer uses alot of electricity. The crops carbon footprint is not fesable unless you have a very valuable crop . ; )
