Real-world technology looks slightly different than the one you have built. Here is an example out of the USA GS2-HD automatic Needle Seeder. It was developed with seeding larger greenhouses in mind. When using technology like this in the real world tracking is very important, not only to track how the automation is doing but to keep track of the recourses used like the seeds.

Your Challenge: Now that you have your tree seeder working, let’s track what’s happening in our garden. Using variable count the number of seeds dropped.

Tips and Tricks:

  • While you could use real seeds and then automatically seed a real garden bed outdoors, it will be much easier to simulate it indoors.
  • You can substitute real seeds with other items like beads, or other arts and crafts materials..
