    On Wednesday, May 3, The Nemaha Central 7th grade went on a field trip to the Kansas Capitol Building in Topeka. The students were able to see where both the House of Representatives and the Senate meet when in session. The students then climbed to the top of the Capitol, where they got a great view of Topeka in its entirety. The students were then given time to visit the gift shop. After the tour, the students traveled down the road to the Aquaponics garden.

    Aquaponics is when you grow a garden using water that contains fish waste. In the Aquaponics garden that the 7th graders visited, they had several fish tanks containing Tilapia that swam around in water all day and then their water was used to water the plants. Aquaponics gardens are used to help countries that are not as developed so that they can still grow everything they need in an easier way.

    "It was a great experience getting to go and tour the Capitol Building. It was extremely rewarding going to the top. It was a bit frightening, but I loved it!" said Ellie Mady.

    "I had a lot of fun learning about our state," said Jeremiah Dalrymple.
