Mandurama Public School is a multi-age school from K-6, with the focus of their STEM Connections illustration of practice centering around food and fibre production through the use of a smart garden. To determine the success of each growing season, students compared wicking and non-wicking garden beds to identify which was better for plant survival. Students used micro:bits to measure current to indicate whether the garden beds were wet or dry. They compared data from each bed to determine which garden bed design was better for growing plants in their region.
