Kid-Friendly Gardening Kits

'Grüt' is a Smart Gardening Set That Helps Kids Take Care of Plants

— June 15, 2015 — Tech
'Grüt' is a new smart gardening kit that is designed to help children learn to grow and care for their own plants. The set comes with a series of smart sensors and an accompanying mobile app, which helps to turn gardening into an educational activity for children.

Grüt works through the use of sensors, which help to collect information about the light, temperature and soil moisture of a plant. The data collected is then sent to the Grüt app. The app features a virtual avatar of the plant, which provides the child with information about the plant's condition. Through the educational app, children learn how to grow their plant and keep it healthy.

The fun and interactive application helps provide an easy way of teaching children about how to tend to and care for plants on their own. The smart gardening set also provides children with much greater lessons about the responsibility of tending to a living thing.
