Gresham High School InvenTeam
Drip-irrigation System to Water Household Plants
- Known as the Smart Watering Irrigation System (SWIS), the device analyzes the soil-moisture content through moisture sensors.
- When the soil moisture reaches the 30 percent threshold, water is no longer distributed to the plant.
- Local nurseries sponsored and consulted on the project, and Vernier provided the InvenTeam with design equipment.
- For its next steps, the InvenTeam plans to create an Internet interface so consumers can monitor their plants remotely.
