Reptile Misters

 

Meeting Time

Tuesdays, 6:20-7:10 PM

Project Description

ASU EPICS team Reptile Misters has been approached by Ryan Zach, the Director of Herpetological Collections at the Phoenix Zoo, because the habitats for native reptiles and amphibians at the Zoo prevent the animals from experiencing moisture when changes in the atmospheric pressure signal storms outside. Not only will this project provide a more natural habitat for these animals, thus regulating their reproduction cycles, but it will also alleviate some of the workload for the keepers who currently mist these tanks manually. Since Fall 2019, the team has iterated on their prototype design, developing a functioning system with circuitry and plumbing fully integrated.
