Curiosity Ignited as MantisOpenSTEM Leads in Hydroponics at ATDC Startup Showcase
MantisOpenSTEM proves to have exciting future plans and a solid business model as a member of ATDC Accelerate.
MantisOpenSTEM's hydroponics prototype measures light, temperature, moisture and PH by incorporating their Mantis Climate Sensor and Sensor Wand. Both sensors are Bluetooth compatible for readouts and controls. During the demonstration, guests were shown that at the push of a button they're able to determine the environmental factors including soil moisture content and more. The system is designed to be an affordable hydroponics startup platform that allows for full and detailed control of data collection.
Additionally, the Mantis robotics on display made for an entertaining afternoon. Using Bluetooth technology, visitors to the exhibit were able to control and maneuver the Mantis Rover. As a bonus, the Rover was printed using a 3D printer. The Rover will be featured in the upcoming Mantis Summer Series STEM Immersion Workshops.

MantisOpenSTEM representative Robert Johnson was buzzing with excitement. "The amount of people who were able to come by and see our display was fantastic! We were busy the entire time the floor was open". Mr. Johnson was not the only person happy to see STEM technology for students at the conference. Visitors to the booth shared his enthusiasm, saying that they were "elated to see educational technologies"
