The Solar Dryer - Solidarity FabLab La Mine

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The Solar Dryer

Solidarity FabLab La Mine   

This dryer has been designed for use at the Suzanne Farm, in the middle of Paris. This sustainable agriculture tool will process surpluses produced by this farm located on the roofs of the city. It will also be a tool for raising awareness among the general public, as well as urban and non-urban farms. Two young people aged 18 and 19, with the support of FabManagers, took part in workshops to learn how to make the parts for this piece of equipment. The dryer will be assembled and its construction will be documented in order to inspire others. A total of three solar dryers are set to be made and installed.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

We have provided free training to young people seeking to enter the world of work since 2014 in our Solidarity FabLabs. There they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps even a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, the challenge is to create digital objects that address new agricultural and food issues. A theme that directly addresses one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals: "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture."
