Micro: Bit STEM plant growing system
“Monitoring the plantation is DIFFICULT, don’t you think? They are silent all the time and do not show their needs until the situation becomes really critical. The fact of the matter is, plants need water and sunlight to grow, but exactly how much does it take for your plant to thrive? Stop trial and error learning, save innocent lives by planting in smarter ways. Our kit contains a micro: bit control board for temperature monitoring and intelligent sensors for displaying soil moisture and light intensity. You can then develop a way to closely monitor the plant’s growth rate and know its needs in a timely manner. “
