Hidroponia Ecuador is an environmental education field work project in Ecuador as part of a USA College international service learning course. In an effort to develop opportunities for applied environmental studies in a co-designed, co-taught international service learning course in Ecuador (2015-2016), this field-based course introduced hydroponics, two gardens, and composting to teachers and students at Henry Davis Orphanage and School (HDS) in Ecuador. Hydroponics adaptors were printed using open source software by 3Dponics and shipped to HDS. The course in Ecuador offered college students a unique opportunity to implement a bi-national, bilingual natural science curriculum while also empowering the orphanage-school with an approach to food sustainability. The project is providing distance professional development to HDS teachers in Ecuador employing Skype video-conferencing, and Youtube video sharing through a shared Google Drive account.
