Learn about Advanced Agricultural technologies and design your own automated lettuce farm in a whole new way
Students will learn about some of the impacts of fertilizers on the natural environment as well as the potential benefits of vertical farming. Students will also be provided with guided materials to apply physical computing and coding to turn on a pump with a button. They will extend upon this application to create an automated watering system by incorporating a moisture sensor so the pump will turn on when the moisture level of a plant is low.
Suggested Grade Levels for Part A (Background and Context Materials): 3-8
Difficulty Level for Part B (Coding and Physical Computing): Beginner
Please note: This course is designed to be used in conjunction with the InkSmith Climate Action Kit. The Kit contains all the robotic parts and the PCB breakout board needed to complete the project. You will need at least one micro:bit per kit to complete the project, however, the more micro:bits the better.
