RCC aquaponics featured in TV show — XPLORATION STATION

WGHP-TV (FOX 8) ASHEBORO, N.C. — Science students at Randolph Community College experienced being under the microscope in a different way.

A television crew from the nationally syndicated TV show Xploration Earth 2050 visited the campus to feature its aquaponics lab.

“To be thought of as experts and be showcasing a technology like this for young people all over the whole country that’s an amazing feeling,” Kevin Jones, science instructor at Randolph Community College, said

Xploration Earth 2050 producer Merv Jones says he came across the school while doing research.
