Lockmar Elementary School in Palm Bay named Florida Tech its business partner of the year for the 2014-15 academic year. The genesis of the recognition was a partnership between Florida Tech Assistant Professor Andrew Palmer and Curtis Dilger, a 6th grade science teacher. Assisted by several biology undergraduates, Palmer and Dilger ran a hydroponics club at the school over the last school year, using the club as an educational starting point to teach students about experimental design, hydroponics, solar power, plant biology, water conservation and the dangers of excess fertilizer usage. The partnership will continue next year.
