To become a Junior Apprentice AQUAPON, you must develop basic knowledge and fundamental skills in aquaponics.  With support from the AQUAPONS community, you will build strong observational skills, reflective practices and gain hands-on experience.  This badge can be earned over a period of 2-6 months, while you accumulate the Junior Apprentice level Content badges (Design, Water, Fish, Plants), and the Impact Badge with a focus on your Environmental, Community, and Economic impact.

We suggest you begin your journey with the Design and Build Badge.  This Badge introduces you to the what and why of aquaponics.  You will also build your own system!   Complete all the activities to become a Junior Apprentice AQUAPON!
