Automatic Watering System

We are delighted to share a blog written by Amar Zein, a student at Ali Bin Abi Taleb, Lebanon who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2018-19 Global Goals Competition.

Their project  is among over 620 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community. 

Our project aims to reduce the intake of water by adopting an automatic watering system.

Nothing fills our hearts with joy more than working together by teamwork and collaboration to reach a goal united in making a change.

Project Summary

our project aims to reduce the intake of water by adopting an automatic watering system functioned by the raspberry pi. With this functional system, we opt to water plants relying on specific factors such as humidity, time intervals, etc. .

Our Journey

We first started by doing our own research about the topic to check for feasible information and to make sure our project is viable. After collecting enough data, we arranged a meeting with the municipality of Beirut where we presented our project infront of the Mayor of Beirut. The Mayor also let us in on critical information and advice that will help us in our project. We are now hosting a campaign in our school about our project and to raise awareness about saving water. We have also started by building a model of our school so we could start representing our watering system on it.

The Next Chapter

We are going to host a garage sale in order to fund our project. More events like Cinema Day and much more coming soon!
