Working in a multinational team with students from a Thai university, we created an aeroponic garden for the Wat Pathumwanaram School's soil-less agriculture program. Further, we created educational material to teach the practices of soil-less agriculture. These two objectives help the school demonstrate the role of soil-less agriculture as a sustainable technology. To develop the aeroponic garden we used engineering design, guiding us to a feasible solution to meet the needs of the school. In developing the curricular materials, we defined goals and outcomes that were matched to practices already used. This ensured that the changes could be seamlessly integrated into daily practice. Overall, we were able to help demonstrate the potential that technology has to meet the needs of a society.
