Solution description

Our final product it's a plugin which allows elementary school kids to learn how to do fair recycling.

With the addition of a camera and an AI that recognize objects and faces, we have created a smart tool.

This kids' challenge consists of guessing in which trash can they must throw away their rubbish with a very easy interface located on the tablet, based on their reply they will get some points. 

Our mechanical arm will check the user’s choice  and it will throw away the garbage in the correct trash can when the user submits the correct choice. 

In order to not get the children bored, there will be a school leaderboard based on the score that we have previously mentioned.

The success of the solution will be measured by the number of schools that will buy our product.

It will provide benefits by teaching kids to have respect for the environment to reduce pollution. 

Solution context

The main challenge of our team is growing up responsible people using innovative technologies.

We want kids to use technologies not only for worthless things, we think that they can learn and play at the same time.

There is a necessity to teach young people that the future is in their hands and we have found a pleasant way to do it.

Solution target group

Our target group is 6-14 y.o. kids.

Using our approach, the target group can learn about certain patterns of behavior related to the environment avoiding traditional learning methods.

Moreover, the game experience might spark learners’ interest in particular topics related to our planet.

Solution impact

Our solution will have a big impact on elementary schools.

In this regard, we can measure the efficiency of this solution with the learners' feedback. We can redesign and / or adapt the tool accordingly.
