Technology Meets Ecology
Students will build a solar powered, hydroponic smart garden and begin the path to becoming a green-tech leader using 21st-century coding skills, electrical engineering, and environmental leadership.
To thrive in this challenging yet optimistic reality, our children need to demonstrate grit, creativity, and critical thinking. They need to know themselves, their connection with the environment, and technology.
Unfortunately, they won't be performing. As for the class, we've partnered with LEAF to bring your students this exciting green-tech class!
Right now, all we can say is SOON! Enter your email in the mailing list box at the top of the page and we'll keep you posted.
The location is also in the works. But we do anticipate your students learning both indoors and outdoors.
Easy now. We're not just gonna tell you EVERYTHING!
In this class, students build an industry-grade, solar-powered, hydroponic smart garden. We’ll start with the very basics of Arduino coding, walk you through circuit design, software development, and building gadgets using the Arduino platform. We’ll then shift focus to electrical engineering where you’ll build a commercial-grade, standalone solar generator. You’ll apply design thinking principles to bring it all together into custom-built smart hydroponic herb garden designed by you! Finally, we’ll work individually with each of you to develop a college-ready project portfolio showcasing your skills. All along, you will work with mentors from Stanford University, gardener extraordinaire from Fremont LEAF, and local environmental leaders.
