Faiz Firdausi Mas’ud Hermansyah <p>Catfish (Clarias gariepinus) is the main commodity and prima donna in the freshwater fish market which also generates significant sales in the market. Data from the Directorate General of Aquaculture from 2009 to 2013 shows an increase in consumption of catfish in Indonesia. From these data it can be seen that there is an economic potential from the needs of catfish in the market. To support meeting the needs of catfish, it is necessary to make efforts to increase catfish production, one of which is by increasing the work efficiency of catfish farming and monitoring water quality. Feeding automatically using a microcontroller is one way to increase work efficiency. This effort is realized in a design of an automatic catfish feeding device whose operating method uses the Internet of Things (IoT) concept to adjust the opening and closing of the feed door. The feeding algorithm or program is stored in the microcontroller (NodeMCU esp8266) as the control unit. The results of the application of the tool show that in terms of quality, automatic fish feeders can improve efficiency in feeding fish. In this case, the farmer's workload can be reduced for feeding activities. It is hoped that reducing the burden and working hours of farmers will provide opportunities for other productive activities for farmers.</p> 2023-02-17T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 M.

Because of this function, the need for electronic devices continues to increase from year to year and unknowingly has an impact on increasing electronic waste (e-waste). The lack of awareness of the importance of e-waste management is also an obstacle in itself. Therefore, this activity aims to increase awareness of the importance of utilizing or recycling electronic waste into a new innovation that has high value and can be used in the long term. One of them is a charger product innovation from electronic waste recycling created by Casbarkuy in the form of a Charger Station from the Power Supply component on a DVD-Player and a Powerbank Station from a Laptop Battery from Casbarkuy. The method used in this activity is Participation Action Research (PAR) which consists of several stages including the planning stage, the implementation stage to the evaluation stage. The result of this activity is that people are starting to be aware of the importance of managing electronic waste and knowing the right solutions to overcome existing problems. And most importantly, researchers can introduce Casbarkuy to the public as one of the innovative products that utilize electronic waste.</p> 2023-02-17T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Nely Apriyanti, Rahmat Novrianda Dasmen, Darwin
