How to fight against the swarms of crickets that ravage crops and cause food shortages, without using pesticides? With this new system, housed within an aerodynamic rocket, which produces high-frequency sounds that disturb the insects! The entire system is carried by a drone into the vast desert areas that are difficult to access for people. Imagined, designed and produced in the FabLab by a 23-year-old, the next version of the prototype rocket will use solar energy.

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."
