Outputs

Project deliverables consist of 3 educational kits that allow young users to act upon their own environment in view of tackling environmental issues, by, for example, reducing energy consumption and monitoring environmental parameters. The kits will introduce users to:

  • home automation in view of encouraging and fostering energy saving behaviours
  • monitoring environmental parameters (quality of the air, atmospheric variables, etc.) in view of collecting data about one’s local environment and subsequently uploading them on a platform for participative citizen science
  • automated gardening systems in order to trigger curiosity and interest in DIY gardening
