Is it possible to build irrigation control for the school garden with the micro:bit board?

Workshop 2 - IoT: intelligent communications with micro:bit


Yes! In this workshop you will learn how to use the Wappsto:bit expansion board to create an automatic irrigation system, one of the elements of the Educational Department robotics equipment that will arrive in schools during the coming school year. This expansion board will allow IoT projects to be carried out in schools.


  • Learn about the expansion possibilities of Wappsto:bit and the IoT projects that can be done in primary and secondary classrooms.

  • Implement a data collection and analysis system for the automatic irrigation system of an orchard or plant: 

    • Visualize the data that the sensors are saving in the cloud (sound, temperature, humidity in the air and on the ground, brightness).

    • Actuator drive (servo motor, continuous (fan) and relay).
