The Greenhouse Sense & Control Kit is supported by student activities that can be edited to fit your course needs. Each activity builds students’ computational thinking skills through Blockly programming and includes opportunities to focus on biology or environmental science concepts. Every investigation includes extensions that enhance engineering and design practices.
Write a program that controls light output in order to model the sun’s daily light cycle.
Program a fan that controls the air temperature inside an EcoChamber greenhouse
Program an automated plant watering system of their own design
Use Greenhouse inputs and outputs to identify an ideal plant choice.
Use inputs and outputs to incorporate and program an autonomous Greenhouse.
