At A Glance

The Agromechanic Support for Knowledge (ASK)™ device is an educational tool for all audiences who want to learn about climate change and agriculture.

The mechanical ASK™ device demonstrates live agricultural processes to educate various audiences about soil moisture, soil saturation, evaporation, and crop suitable precipitation. The internal mechanism of the mechanical ASK™ device reacts to the addition of a pre-determined amount of water that subsequently triggers a mechanical artificial plant to rapidly “grow” into a fully developed plant.

Overall, this system can educate users of parametric insurance to demonstrate different forecasts associated with soil moisture and students at various levels on the effects of climate variability and how it impacts agriculture.
