Emily came into classes today to introduce them to a new project: an automated irrigation system for our greenhouse. We’ve set the project up where the class is a company and Emily, in her role as helping run the school gardens, is the client. Here, she’s asking the kids where the school garden and greenhouse are.
Above is one of the garden beds that we’ll be setting up with irrigation automation. We’ll be sensing soil moisture and turning on a soaker hose when it’s too dry. I’m thinking we’ll have a system kinda like this.
