Bryan's Ribbon Cutting & Open House Friday, on November 18th, marked the successful implementation of the agrobox growing environment, another feather in the cap for their Urban Ag Program. 

The ceremony started off in the Bryan High Library, then moved outside to the AgroBox to celebrate the newest addition to the program, the Rubicon AgroBox Automated Hydroponic Growing Facility. This also marked the  official unveiling of the work of Omaha artist & 2010 Bryan alum, Hugo Zamorano, whose vivid mural painted on the side of the AgroBox encapsulates the vision of Nebraska’s only Urban Agriculture Career Academy. 

The Bryan Sr. Urban Ag Academy’s custom AgroBox is a modular STE(Ag)M classroom designed to allow students to experiment, fail & succeed. With Rubicon’s Integrated Control Suite driving the hydroponic action, there is future entrepreneurial agribusiness potential to provide fresh, nutrition produce through Farm-to-School & local restaurant collaborations.

The AgroBox is hands-on, multidisciplinary learning for the needs of tomorrow's workforce.
