Science Working model competition
Automatic Irrigation System
Young scientist Master Ujwal from grade 6 of Bethany School, Kinnikambla, Mangalore, participated in the state level Science working model competition at Tejas international School, Bagalkote conducted by the CBSE on 1st and 2nd December 2022. His project was Automatic Watering the plant on reading the moisture content in the soil. In this system, the moisture sensor senses the moisture level of the soil and when the sensor senses a low moisture level it automatically switches the water pump with the help of a microcontroller and irrigates the plant. After supplying sufficient water, the soil retains the moisture, and automatically the pump gets stopped.
