We presented a design process update to the Bio Lab Studio Staff at the Tech museum in San Jose, CA on February 7th 2019 for final design approval. Tech Museum Presentation

In order to sustain life on the system the team will be installing grow lights to help plants grow. The water tank on the middle of the system will hold a mixture of Glofish and Sucker fish.
IoT sensors and interactive exhibition
One of the most important aspects of this project is to demonstrate, through collected data, that it is possible to grow plants through a self-sustaining system. Furthermore, our exhibition must show the general audience of the Tech technical data in an interactive and intuitive manner, to accomplish this task the team leverages the Kijanigrows microcontroller to upload and display the current state of the aquaponics system in real time. The image below shows the average light and temperature collected over a span of 2 days.
