Soil Sensor is a widget of the Piper Make Clean Energy Kit, and a fun way to build and code a tool that measures the moisture in soil! Soil Sensor is an add-on and REQUIRES a Piper Make Starter Expedition Kit with the Raspberry Pi Pico to get started (sold separately).
Learn how to use a simple sensor made out of common household pieces to measure conduction and water content (and use it to jam out on your own air guitar)!
With Piper Make Soil Sensor, you will receive:
- Resistors (1 MOhm and 330 Ohm)

- Bar Graph LED
- Plastic Plant Stake
- Copper Tape
- Foil Squares
