Στόχος της δραστηριότητας που βασίζεται στο παιχνίδι είναι να μαντέψουν ο μαθητές το είδος του φυτού βάσει ορισμένων δεδομένων.

 

Οι συμμετέχοντες θα μάθουν τις διαφορετικές καταστάσεις και μεταβλητές μίας επιλεγμένης ομάδας φυτών. Και στη συνέχεια θα τους δοθούν μερικές ανώνυμες πληροφορίες για κάποιο μυστικό φυτό.

 

Οι συμμετέχοντες που θα μαντέψουν πρώτοι το όνομα του φυτού (με κάποια αιτιολόγηση) θα κερδίσουν.

This activity consisted, first, in the creation of a 3D design which represents the data collected by the spike and which can also be viewed via the dashboard. After it, two workshops were done in the primary school Jesuïtes de Gràcia, collecting data for two different groups (of approximately 40 primary students per group), in two sessions for each group (control and experimental groups) in the two sessions conducted (a total of four workshops).

The children will observe how a bean plant grows and capture the information in a journal. They will conduct a fair test whether the plant will grow successfully. For example, if the plant will need direct sunlight, partial sunlight or be placed in the shade. They will also discover what else a plant needs in order to grow.

The importance of having healthy work spaces is key to people's well-being. This matter has acquired special relevance in recent years due to the pandemic, a period in which it has been necessary to balance variables such as CO2 and temperature. To this end, health-related organizations have drawn up recommendations on the ideal CO2 values (CO2<1000 ppm) and on how work spaces should be ventilated (cross ventilation) to minimize contagion.

We are entering a winter in which energy spending is going to rise drastically due to the impact of the invasion in Ukraine. In this context, some governments have already decreed measures to moderate energy consumption by establishing temperature limits for the use of heating (maximum 27ºC) and air conditioning (minimum 19ºC) in public settings .
It is scientifically proven that using certain houseplants indoors can help moderate these variables. In fact, there are plants that are especially suitable for regenerating CO2, and they also help soften abrupt changes in temperature and humidity as a result of opening doors/windows. How can we comply with government regulations without affecting health recommendations? In this practice we are going to try using technology and natural means.

To address this problem, it is proposed to develop a mobile application that makes use of an IoT system that monitors variables in indoor spaces. These variables (ambient temperature, ambient humidity, ambient light, CO2, and soil temperature) affect people and plants that live in the same workspace. For this, the application to be developed must collect, interpret, and give feedback to the user on the health conditions of the environment. It can also give recommendations to the user on what actions to take to adjust it to these regulations and/or recommendations (e.g., open/close window/door, raise/lower air/heating). In addition, you can display data on additional external sources.

This activity involves teaching primary school pupils the cycle of life and provides pointers to the start of life and the end of life and the stages of life. This activity is based on a short story which connects the stages of a plant’s life (e.g., the sunflower / the flower of happiness) with human life.

The goal of the activity is to teach the kids the fundamentals of scientific journaling adapted to each educational level. To accomplish that I suggest 6 fundamental tasks to be done:

 

  1. Define the frequency of the data gathering.
  2. Predefine the data to be registered on the journal.
  3. Define the template / example journal for guidance.
  4. Follow the journaling plan.
  5. Share the final journal with peers.
  6. Discuss over different conclusions.

Group activity. The goal is to teach digital skills to students using data collected from plants. More specifically, the international standard measurements for each variable (eg temperature in degrees centigrade, carbon dioxide in parts per million), recommendations on appropriate values in learning spaces will be explored. An experiment will be carried out to see how the values collected by the system are adjusted in comparison to the recommendations.

The goal of this game-based activity is to guess the species of a plant given some piece of data. 

 

Participants will learn about the different conditions and variables of a selected group of plants. And then they’ll be introduced to some anonymous information about one secret plant. 

 

The participants that first guess the name of the plant (with fair reasoning behind it) will win.

The purpose of the activity is to empathize with a plant. To achieve this, students must roleplay as the class plant and start writing short stories about how they imagine the plant feels, perceive its environment, and manage challenges. The dashboard connected with the sensors will be used as the primary source of data related to the general status of the plant

The germination rate of seeds depends on the soil temperature. The pupils observe the influence of temperature in an experiment. They take two planters for this. One is placed on a small hot plate during the experiment to warm the soil. One pot stands on the cool ground.

How long does it take for the small plant to become visible?

Competition-like based on points, with one plant and Spike for each group. There is a range of measurement values that gives users more points the closer they are to the optimal values of the plant. Whoever gets the most points wins. Also, participants can see on a display their score compared to the rest of the participants, creating a virtual garden.

Starting from the data collected by the Spike, a data set will be created. With a pre-fixed "faked" data set, students are expected to do a research work in which they find out what could have happened to a plant that has experienced an extreme situation and how they could have reversed this outcome.
