Robeco / Toy


Waste segregation at source is the most efficient solution for waste management. For a sustainable environment, future generations should be properly educated in waste management. Robeco is an educational game for kindergarten children to teach them how to separate waste from childhood. The cards symbolically show four types of plastic, paper, metal, and organic waste. With the instructor’s guidance, children insert the cards into the special slot for each waste. The device will recognize the inserted card by reading the hologram from the back of each card and interacts with the user with an encouraging response to continue the game.
