January 16th 2015, HydroGarden

  Things are really getting underway with our autonomous Hydroponic garden.  Materials are in and building has commenced.  Students scramble back and forth  across the room, the grow-tent is taking shape and programmers are learning new code in order to interface our electronics with Arduino microcontrollers.  Decisions have been made in regards to which electronics we will use, LEDs, pumps, aerators and fans were delivered over break, while microcontrollers are on their way.  We have also ordered relays for use in switching components that operate at higher voltage.  As everything begins to speed up and take shape, we are very excited about the future of this project.
