Students combine electronics, sensors and Arduino micro-computers to build and code a plant monitoring station. Students will program their station to indicate the “happiness level” of their plant by measuring the moisture level in the soil and displaying a happy or sad face on an LED grid. They will learn about plant science; how plants use energy from sunlight, how factors such as humidity, temperature, and the level of UV light affect plant growth. Students will experiment with sensors and learn to add them to monitor conditions. Students take home their very own potted plant, complete with their plant monitoring system. No discounts.

Key Concepts: Plant science; introduction to Arduino and circuitry; binary code and conditionals; integration of sensors and displays.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY FORM: A waiver of liability form must be completed for each student and submitted before the start date of the camp/class/workshop in order for your student to attend any College for Kids or College for Teens program.

ALLERGIES: It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to notify us of any allergies that a student may have. It is important for us to know this information before camp begins. Please note, courses held at the Institute for the Culinary Arts are held in commercial kitchens with allergens present, and while all efforts possible will be made to keep students out of direct contact with allergens, no room can be guaranteed as allergen-free. If your student has allergies, please complete our allergy form at mccneb.me/allergy.

Full refunds will be issued to students who withdraw from culinary camps at least seven business days prior to the camp start date. No credit will be issued for any camps/ workshops dropped on or after the camp start date. To withdraw your registration, please call 531-MCC-5231.

It is helpful to receive accommodations requests at least 10 days in advance of a program. With less advance notice, it may be difficult to meet needs of interested members.
