The idea originated from a combination of education and a previous children’s toy project at university. The Berry Farm demonstrates the growing process and life cycle of plants; aimed at ages 7-11 it meets the Key Stage 2 curriculum.
The Berry Farm uses electronic sensors to monitor the plants’ light, water and temperature levels to ensure growing conditions are suitable. If the levels aren’t suitable a warning light indicates the problem so the user can resolve it. Due to the age group and nature of the product, it has been designed to grow strawberries, creating a tasty reward for the user.
