Educational process' experimental implementation with the support of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) integrated to the elective course "Principles of Environmental Sciences" of the Second High School Class that combines environmental education, principles of space design, introduction to information technologies in ecology and "green" ICT, and sustainable development through the digital management of planting and of the introduction to the crucial wider issue of precision agriculture. The experimental implementation is realized in collaboration with the professors of the 1st General High School of Agios Dimitrios. Temperature sensors, humidity and illumination are placed in structures parametrically designed according to the bioclimatic conditions of the space of the school yard and have been sited in accordance with the operational needs of the complex.
