EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future


The Sensor CDT MRes Team Challenge students are holding a Mini-Make-a-Thon in the classroom at MakeSpace on Saturday, 3 August 2019. They are seeking some experts to help with developing a sensor device for soil health monitoring in South Africa, specifically soil nutrients and moisture retention. They will be tackling these challenges during the day:

1. Find a way to get an Arduino to repeatably measure small capacitance with few or no extra parts;

2. Our design aims to be waterproof, easy to use and cheap. Find a problem with the current design and propose a solution.

Why not come and join the Team? See the link below for registration and further details.
