The generation that is now at school age will have to face the problems generated by the present in a few years. The future belongs to them. Instead of waiting passively, young people are already trying to shape it. They use their ingenuity, new technologies and fabrication tools to solve problems of food production, storage and waste.
During the festival meeting, they’ll present projects inspired by food technologies, bioinnovations and robotics. These will include:
- Plant vegetation control station
- Insect houses with monitoring system
- 3D printer for food
- Technologically advanced bin for kitchen biological waste
Young engineers are the winners of the Dream Builders grant competition, which supports the development of young people’s interests and competences in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The project is financed by Boeing.
