Sprout is a planter and an air freshener that can improve the quality of air in your kids' rooms. The air filtration is powered by an elastic thin-film solar panel.
It can give children aged 6 to 9 years, an idea of how plants filter CO2 and produce clean air. Just like real plants, it is powered by sunlight.
The "leaf" is made from intelligent elastic material and covered by a thin-film solar panel. The light sensor is installed below the "leaf".
The air is absorbed into Sprout from the middle hole of the "leaf", and the fresh air is released from the outlet to the plant which brings the fresh smell of the plant into the room.
Sprout is placed on the windowsill of kid's room. The child can see the process of Sprout's opening "leaf", and they can understand Sprout is working when they see the plant is shaking because of the flow of fresh air. The whole process of improving the quality of air is only powered by sunlight.
When darkness falls, the "leaf" will close itself and Sprout will become dormant, just like a plant, because it cannot get sunlight. This way, kids can understand the basic function of the ecological process.
