The vision of the project is to create an engaging community in the class, where knowledge, and experiences with designing your own greens in i high-tech and fun way, creates an interest in food, meals and health.

In this way the teaching of the journey from ground to table is moved into the classroom and the biology classes. Eight prototypes has been developed and tested during 2019-2020.

Ha(c)k your Greens is a cooperation between DTU Food, Copenhagen University College, DTU Skylab and Center for Playware at DTU Electro. It is supported by the Nordea-foundation.
