Goals of the sensor network

One of the primary goals of the Global Flora Conservatory is to cultivate a multipurpose experience that infuses the aesthetic value of the botanic gardens with the utility of an on-campus living laboratory. Wellesley students of all majors and class years are invited to engage in hands-on practice of STEM curriculum through the sensor network, which monitors the real-time conditions of the greenhouse, details habitat specifications for two distinct biomes, and much more!
