INTAG’s aquaponic systems are like no other. Centered around our patented no-waste technology, INTAG system are the only aquaponic systems to process all of the solid aquaculture waste (yes, no dumping! It’s patented!) into a complex fertilizer/bio stimulant allowing for the production of a wide variety of plants, from lettuce to banana trees, without the need for added chemical fertilizers. We offer products for education customers of all sizes from basic elementary learning to commercial-scale school or district farms operated as local businesses.
District Education Package
INTAG’s K-12 District Education Package is used to generate interest in a wide range of STEM topics from an early age. With four systems included, a structure of continuity from elementary through high school can be achieved ensuring interest is maintained increasing student engagement and experiential learning. Students can grow a wide range of crops as well as study best-in-practice crop growing techniques, fish care, nutrient cycles, as well as many areas other environmental science.
INTAG’s District Package include one large classroom or lab-based E 100 STEM system and three Mobile STEM systems (one mobile system for small school districts). Using INTAG’s internationally patented waste recycling bio-environment, unlike other aquaponic systems, INTAG systems process all of the aquaculture waste (no dumping of waste solids) to produce a natural complex plant nutrient & biostimulant allowing for crop production ranging from lettuces to banana trees without the need of added chemical fertilizers. INTAG’s aquaponic systems are truly a revolution in recirculating aquaponic science.

Mobile STEM Lab
INTAG mobile aquaponic systems are specifically designed to teach the basics of aquaponics and plant growth. Constructed for use by early learners, these systems are durable, easy to operate and can be moved between classrooms increasing student involvement. INTAG’s mobile systems are included in various quantities only with our District Packages.
The mobile aquaponic system houses colorful aquarium fish and can be used to cultivate either small herbs or low maintenance decorative houseplants.

E100 STEM Lab
Unlike other aquaponic systems, INTAG’s E100 Stem lab uses our proprietary and internationally patented waste-free solids processing. No dumping of solid fish waste as all waste is processed into a full spectrum plant nutrient which allows for INTAG’s systems to grow complex plants such as banana trees, cocoa trees, pineapples. With its 100 square foot profile, the E100 STEM Lab is easily incorporated into a variety of spaces. This system offers consistent growth, and is best suited for a restaurant, classroom, and greenhouse settings.
From this system you can harvest 60 lbs of tilapia per year, as well as an estimated 1,800 heads of leafy greens. In addition to growing different types of produce, the STEM Lab 100 can grow and sustain a multitude of fruits and vegetables, fruit trees and a wide variety of different house plants.

INTAG’s custom designed School Farms are meant to replicate commercial-like controlled environment agriculture (CEA) introducing students to all areas of commercial CEA farming operations. By running their own business, in addition to STEM related topics, students acquire hands-on experience in a broad range of other areas including business management, marketing and finance, art and design, data collection and analysis, and food distribution. Our School Farm clients generate products that are used in their cafeterias, sold at local farmers markets, and donated to organizations assisting those in need.
Each of our School Farms is unique and designed specifically to suit the needs of the school or district. Ideal for high schools and technology centers, the large format allows for ‘at-scale’ skills training and career readiness on state-of-the-art commercial aquaculture and hydroponic growing equipment. Operated as farm-stand or student business, School Farms broaden student engagement around a wide variety of curriculum offering insight into a wide variety of different career pathways (business, marketing, culinary, engineering).
While each School Farm is specifically designed to meet our customer’s needs, all include at least one large greenhouse, an aquaculture installation, and an INTAG Natural Nutrient System (INNS) processing all of the aquaculture waste into the natural nutrient used to support the hydroponic growing.
INTAG is equipped to build a system to fit your specific needs. Our modular systems may be constructed for everything from small growing in your home to large, layered systems that provide full produce to a grocery store. Contact INTAG for pricing.
Our team works closely with you in the design and installation of your customized system. Please contact us to see how we can make your aquaponic garden, living laboratory, or production facility come to life.
