Our project is to create an eco responsible food app in order to prevent about consumption and pollution.
We wanted to make a project related to this theme which is important to us.
1. First of all, we looked for what could be the most polluting products, in order to find out which products we should target. Here are some examples:
-Plastic (cups, bottle, bags, straws, cutlery, ...)
-Paper (bags, tissues, ...)
2. And after, we search for already existing solutions :
3. Afterwards, here are the ideas we reached :
-a system to clean the streets of big cities from cigarette butts by swapping the amount of cigarette ends picked up for a reward (money, discount coupons, etc)
-an eco-responsible delivery service (app), using bikes but edible or degradable cutlery as well. Besides, a service that would recover the dishes once finished (reusable ceramic plates by the company: inspired from the Korean delivery system).
/!\ Remark: need to broaden our vision, larger scale. For this --> mind map
1. During the first session our main project idea was the eco responsible food app. However an app does not require to build something with the available tools (3D printer…)
We gave up on this project and started to find other ideas.
2. Here are the main ideas we came up with during this session :
- Improve the public toilets sanitary
Smell, paper on the ground
Maybe by using some colorful lights
Is it possible to change people's behavior ?
- Luminotherapy in the transports as a substitute of the solar light
Is it really effective ?
- The RER Kit
How to improve the well being of people in the underground system/ RER ? (SDG : health)
The kit could be composed by :
* Something to choose your station and if you fall asleep it rings (each seat or each row)
** An alarm for women (if they are attacked, annoyed, harassed) : it will look like an emergency button (like a buzzer). It needs to be accessible but how if it is accidentally pressed ?
*** Sensors (like in parking) to say how many seats are left : green = the seat is available, red = it's not
3. Then we started to design a paper version of our respective ideas.
/!\ : Although these ideas need more electronics than the first one, they encounter another problem : are they really related to one of the 3 SDGs ?
Working in a common space can sometimes be complicated, especially because of the surrounding noises. For some people, it is really difficult to concentrate if there is not total silence around them. Besides, in some school like ours, there is only one small common space for everyone so it is hard to focus on what you are doing.
Our idea is to create an individual workspace particularly for students, with all the equipment they might need. The goal is also to make it as small as possible so that many can be placed in a limited space.
After we searched and compared the different materials and solutions that we could use for the development of the structure (walls). The challenge is to find the most soundproofing and cheapest material as possible. Here are few leads we found to inspire us :
--> inspiration from the professional equipments in the musical field (studios)
--> hardware store
Other track : shape of the structure
During this session, we continued to think about the materials and shape that our project requires.
More precisely, we calculated what were the most suitable measurements for the structure and for its interior layout. So it's to realize the actual size that we imitated the measurements of the base with tape on the ground (photos). Then, we asked for a tall man to stand in it to see how much space he was taking. Furthermore, we looked for "human measurements" used by architect (image).
Size : 1m-1m-2m15 (see the drawing)
An interface (box) with: a button for the light, a timer, an usb port, an electrical outlet.
