242 teachers, growers, community supporters, and scientists actively contribute to Project Feed 1010’s Facebook page in order to spread knowledge, provide support, and share outreach opportunities to “grow”. The number of followers has more than doubled since this time last year!
Partnered with Cornish College of the Arts, whereby Cornish faculty members will join ISB educators and scientists in a summer mentorship program, ultimately culminating in the marriage of art and science in curricula that will be used in high schools and colleges nationwide!
This year a partnership formed between Northeastern University and the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) to build the core software collection, analysis and collaboration technology for their Aquaponics research initiative, Project Feed 1010.
Collaborated with Seattle Culinary Academy to speak to attendees at their Earth to Dinner Event about sustainable agriculture and food security.
Citizen scientists around the country are actively participating in data collection and contributing to PF1010’s data management site to explore patterns and trends in sustainable agriculture systems!

“Teaching engineering principles and practices through real project experience, as well as exposing students to a range of contemporary, cool technologies, is a highly effective approach to graduate education.”
– Dr. Ian Gorton, Director of Computer Science at Northeastern University-Seattle
PF1010 materials kits were provided to citizen scientists, including data collection materials and aquaponic system maintenance resources
The 4th grade winner of the Project Feed 1010 kit giveaway at the Enumclaw STEM Expo. She’s excited to see if her aquatic frogs will be able to grow plants!
The PF1010 team volunteered their time to transport donations from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to ISB.
We look forward to seeing you as part of PF1010 team
