Our project is about wanting to find out the pH level and temperature of the water that the fishes in our aquaponics live in. We decided to do this because we wondered if the water was changing constantly or was kept at a constant rate so that the fish could survive and what were these survivable variables for these fishes.
Basically the way it works is that there are 2 pieces of equipment that are in the water, one being the temperature sensor and the other the pH sensor. They stay in the water collecting data every minute. The data goes to a spreadsheet that analyses the data. If the waters pH levels are too high the LED turns red. When it is within boundaries, it is blue. If it is too low, it is green. This basically sums it up; the main idea was that it would help the aquaponics lab in knowing their water better and we get the data.
This project lasted from 4-6-17 to 4-21-17.
Building our project was kind of complicated but simpler than it seemed. Connecting the wires was the main focus for which we used jumper wires to connect the pH sensor to the breadboard - which was the main issue.
