SAP Young Thinkers – Snap! Gardening
In the near future, agricultural food production will face an increasing number of challenges. According to United Nations’ Population Division, the world’s population might reach the 10 billion mark by 2050. Thus, the overall food production has to be increased significantly. In contrast, the awareness of environmentally harmful processes during food production has risen. More and more consumers ask for organic agriculture with less land consumption, using less pesticide and transportation resources. This requires improvements particularly in respect of food transparency which can at least partly be addressed via IoT. This is why SAP’s Young Thinkers Community together with SAP d-shop, decided to develop a smart gardening module for schools.
Combining interdisciplinary topics as food security, plant physiology, business processes, coding and IoT the module builds a bridge from a single plant monitor to a greater context. Using Snap!, a graphic programming language, together with SAP technologies as HANA Cloud Platform and UI5, this module is convenient for beginners as well as professionals and can inspire people from 9 to 99.
If you are interested in the future of food production or just need a smart way to keep your pot plant alive or want to contribute to a green city of Mannheim, sign in for this workshop. The participants can keep the working kits after the workshop.
