Not farming nerds, farming for nerds!

Work in a small team to make, setup and test a 'Food Computer'.

During this course we aim to produce 3-5 of the above 'food computers' as part of MIT's open agriculture initiative. Students will learn how to use digital fabrication technologies to make components, electronics techniques to assemble the circuit boards and sensors, and coding to program the food computer.

We'll then use the food computers to control and monitor growth and share data with the open agriculture community.
