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