Inspired by future manned missions to Mars, which will need to learn to grow food in a controlled and remote way for future explorers, CIPSELA implements this program mainly aimed at rural communities, so that students learn about smart agriculture and its applications in the earth.

This program is an experimental platform for “in vitro” culture, which provides young people with a STEM research tool on the relationship between different environmental conditions and the growth of living things.

The platform has a system to keep different organisms (bacteria and plants) alive, it is also equipped with different sensors to capture, record and send data remotely (WiFi). It has a webcam for permanent monitoring and sensors for temperature, humidity, luminosity and CO2.
