The 'Fytó' is a fun, interactive way to teach food waste awareness for young children by having them interact directly with the items and partake in the process to creating a new growth from organic refuse.
Designed by Clara Fessler, the unit works by having food scraps placed within the unit and having a seedling planted that feeds off of the nutrients that are given off. Kids can keep track of the growth thanks to the clear glass dome, while smartphone connectivity enables them to know when it's time to water, add more waste or even provide growing tips.
Making educational activities fun, interactive and tech-focused makes kids interested in topics like food waste awareness. The 'Fytó' is an excellent example of how an optimal educational experience can be created with the help of a connected device.
