We have seen multiple science projects related to the environment, and today once again, we will look towards another fantastic science project. So, today we will learn about how to make a drip irrigation system for a science project. Let us begin.
Let us note down the essential supplies to make a drip irrigation system.
- Push Pin
- Sticky Foam
- Plastic Tubing
- Plastic Cups
- Plant Pots
- Soil Pellets
- Wooden Water Tower Set
Steps To Drip Irrigation System For Science Project
Step 1: The first step is to take a piece of wood and stick it on the edge of the plastic glass with the help of sticky foam.

Step 5: Now, repeat all the steps mentioned above for other plants. Once you are done with the steps, place all the plants according to their labelled coasters.
Placing All the Plants
Step 6: To build a water stand, attach all the vertical pieces with the centrepiece and then notch it. Once it is done, gently keep a plastic cup over it.

Step 10: Now, poke some tiny holes in the plastic tube with the help pushpin.
Pinning the Holes
Step 11: You should slide the plastic tube through a small wooden piece in the next step.

Things To Remember
- Make sure the soil pellets get completely dissolved till one-third of your pot.
- The circle at the edge should get properly attached to the vertical pieces.
- Make sure you make small holes in the pipe.
