This summer in our industry pipeline program in STEM, EduSerc will teach students how to build a hydroponic garden and make it automated for use by various schools, businesses or any entity that would like to sponsor a garden for their local community.  This program seeks to identify and train students that have demonstrated their potential to enter into a STEM field.

Students will learn about the following in their classes:

  • Gardening:  how to plant and grow vegetables

  • Robotics/Motors:  how to make soil pots, pumps and racks move automatically based upon ph levels in water and other environmental conditions

  • Hydroponics: how to make a nutrient filtering treatment system to recycle water to feed vegetables

  • Software Programming:  how to write code to interact with the vegetables to water and feed them nutrients as needed and show it online via a web page

  • Solar energy:  how to utilize solar energy to power various aspects of our garden from motors to fans

Outcome:  Students will produce a large kit that schools can use to build their hydroponic gardens.
