In recent years, there has been a concern to bring research closer to university academic activities with the purpose of creating spaces for the teaching of science and the development of new capacities that allow research to be discovered in university students. The use of development and application of technologies allows students to experiment with research capabilities through experimentation. The objective of this research was to build a device using the Internet of Things (IoT) to control humidity in native potato fields in the Apurímac-Peru region. The study carried out has a quantitative, pre-experimental approach and is oriented towards the application of scientific knowledge for science teaching. The results demonstrate that a pre-experimental approach can be carried out by developing the proposed proposal by building an IoT device using Arduino UNO and sensors to measure the pH of the soil, the turbidity of the water and the humidity, also allowing the data to be sent to the cloud to have information at all times in real time from an application. It is concluded that through an IoT project to monitor humidity where native potato crops are grown in the Apurímac region, science can be taught through the scientific method, developing the activities of problem identification, problem statement, objectives, justification, theoretical framework, methodology, experimental application, results, discussion and conclusions of the work carried out.
