The Star Advertiser’s August 14 publication included an article about the income-based academics divide in Hawaii that highlighted the aquaponics at Highlands Intermediate School, built and maintained by Hapa Farms.  The aquaponics system was pictured (page A14) and described as an example of one of the rigorous STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) projects that students participate in as an important component in preparing students for college and career paths.  The article featured Highlands Intermediate School because of their achievements in raising test scores amongst their high percentage of low-income students.
