Hydroponic Crop Cultivation as a Strategy for Reducing Food Insecurity

This project hopes to serve as both a study and as a guide for designing new crop cultivation techniques in an environmentally-uncertain future. The technical portion of this project is a part of a bigger Capstone, in which a floating hydroponic farm was designed to withstand a category 3 hurricane. This project is by far not an end all-be-all for farming in the Caribbean, but it does introduce a stepping stone for adapting agriculture to the worsening-hurricane climate. The STS portion exists as a guide for projects like the technical one to adapt and think about moving forward.
