In this way the app will allow pupils to monitor and record the growth of the plants they grow in their school garden. They will be able to monitor weather conditions, temperature, speed of growth and yield to mention just a few of the parameters that are being incorporated. Hopefully any produce they grow will be used to prepare themselves a hot meal, again one of the objectives of the programme of study at KS3. Apart from becoming competent in a range of cooking techniques the data the pupils have collected will help them to understand the principles of nutrition and health as well as mapping across into other areas of the National Curriculum, such as Numeracy. The image below illustrates how the app will have the functionality to create graphs based on the data pupils have collected.
