Growlab: Grow your own food challenge with Raspberry Pi #PiDay #Growlab #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi

Growlab is a global contest to grow seeds and share your progress with a Raspberry Pi.

How it works

  1. Read the launch blog post: Join the Grow Lab Challenge.
  2. Decide you’re taking part by sending a PR and adding yourself to the “Growlab Technicians” section below.
  3. Find or buy the required components for the experiments you want to take part in (read all of this file to learn more)
  4. Build your own #growlab using one of the designs, or customize it. And start growing and recording a time lapse.
  5. Use the #growlab hashtag and share as many pictures as you like.
  6. Send a Pull Request and link to each Tweet to unlock each level.
  7. At the conclusion of the growing period, we’ll send some prizes from OpenFaaS Ltd and Pimoroni to entries at random for different tiers.

Note: Growlab 2021 concludes Sunday 3rd October to mark Harvest Festival in the United Kingdom.

Prizes to be provided by: OpenFaaS Ltd and Pimoroni.

The hardware

Raspberry Pi components:

See the video below, their GitHub page, and this blog post.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 35,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
