School: Niels Steensens Gymnasium (grundskolen)
Teacher: Morten Samsø Smidth
Evaluation: The way the students will try to make their families more climate-smart is to make a device that turns off all the light and electronics in the house, that could be considered unused energy. When you are not home or not in the room the device turns off the lights and other electronics. They settled on this idea after several discussions in class, where everyone got the chance to share their point of view and after receiving feedback from their partner class from Iceland, which was a great succes. The students were thinking of smart and innovative ideas to present the product and they created a prototype of the device using an Arduino board, which gives a great representation of the concept.
School: Skála Skúll
Teachers: Andriasa Dam Joensen og Emil Jacobsen
Evaluation: The videos show that the class has been good at collaborating. The students show much enthusiasm and creativity and have even managed a solution in two parts: Fabric bags and a recipe blog. Through the research phase they found some interesting findings and have used these to develop ideas. The ideas have also been through a collaboration-phase with their nordic partner team. The video gives you the feeling that the class has had a good learning experience and have enjoyed the process of working with Nordic Craft.
School: Havukosken koulu
Teachers: Esa Oila og Nina Mattson
Evaluation: Solution video shows: Project name (TMF=Too Much Food) + the theme which is food leftovers + a model for an app showing TMF points where one can donate food and needing people can pick it up. Process video shows: both class and Nordic collaboration, problem solving by several surveys and feedback gathering. One gets the feeling that the strength of their collaboration lies in the problem solving and innovation part of the process. They even took planning and theory to practice and experimented with serving excess food. Thinking outside the school environment locally and seeing an even larger potential is brought forward.
School: Nuuk internationale friskole
Teacher: Melissa Hansen
Evaluation: The "Food Waste Reduce app" has shown that they have researched, collaborated and received feedback with the other country, they have solved the task creatively and innovatively where they involve ICT (prototype using little bits and app development)
Teacher: Már Ingólfur
Evaluation: The team came up with an idea of an app that reduces food waste and developed the app The Kitchen Helper that helps you use your food in a better way. In the app you can store information about what you have in your refrigerator, either by taking a photo of the fridge or the receipt at the store. It lets you know when certain things in the fridge are nearing the use by date and recommends how to use it. You can create a menu in the app for the week or month and get suggestions about how to use the food you already have. You can create a profile and link to social media and set preferences for specific diets.
The team worked very well and efficiently where they showed great collaboration in selecting the best idea out of many – ideas that ranged from a similar app to a smart fridge – and developing it as a team with the help of their partner class in Denmark.
School: Gjettum skole
Teacher: Kristine Østby
Evaluation: Inspired by the show "The Food Shock" the class researched a food waste reduction app. The've come up with multiple solutions. The students have focused on how they can help their parents become better at using the food they have in the fridge and not going to the store and buy food when they can use what they already have.
Teacher: Preeti Gahlawat
Evaluation: Your team had an energy and an engagement that was very invigorative and they showed a lot of collaboration both within the class but also with your class from Finland. The students have chosen a real life problem that is within reach for them to really make an impact and who knows where it will end? The school next door to yours might want to do the same thing, they might come up with a digital solution that they can spread and so on. There are a lot of potential still that they can develop if they like.
School: Vikingaåsens skola
Teacher: Siw Kyrkslätt
Evaluation: The team worked targeted and creative but do not have a prototype yet. They know all what they have worked on, have made decisions together and they have improved the solution through they process and in collaboration with the nordic team. They are going to develop the idea together with a company.
