Use Arduino and recycle electronics to make an E-waste watering can. via instructables
This instructable came out of a project to teach a group of middle school students at RPI. Some of the work is available on the E-Waste Makerspace: http://e-wastetomakerspace.wikispaces.com/E-Waste+…
The purpose of this lesson was to:
Expose students to concepts of pollution, e-waste, re-use, botany, and experimentation.
Give students an understanding of basic electronics and to empower them to create things.
Get kids interested in STEM fields.
The materials you will need are:
A trashed computer tower (plunder an e-waste recycling bin)
A 12-16V power supply – also e-waste
Two DPDT relays that have coil input 5V &
