Our Cycle 2 challenge was to find a way for Indiana to contribute to feeding 9 billion people by 2050 without overwhelming the planet. The winner of this cycle was Liam Greene and Adrian Martinez representing Coach Lee. Their solution was an app that tells you when your food was about to expire and the app also had recipes for the food products that are about to expire, the solution was called “ExpiraCatch”. The other top competitor’s products were “Food’s Journey” “Waste Wars”, “What’s cooking next door?”, and “Family Food”. Food’s Journey is a board game that takes the players on a journey of a food and the main idea of this board game is to help citizens appreciate their food more and waste less. This solution was created by Soneya Tamang and Sarah Winters representing Coach Lee. Waste wars is a kit that they would provide schools with to reduce food waste at their school. This solution was created by Audrey Williamson, Trevor Deckard, and De’Anthony Carter representing Coach Mundall. “What’s Cooking Next Door?’ is an app that lets people see if their neighbor has something you would need but they don’t. People would also be able to give things they don’t need or want to people that needs or wants them. This solution was created by Ridouane Moctar, Makayla Montes, and Salma Montero representing Coach Puffer. Family Food is an interactive, educational, and entertaining board game for all members of the family.  It helps the end users understand the economic impact that Indiana’s agricultural industry has on the overall state’s economy. This solution was created by Francisco Ruiz and Cheyenne Strauch representing Coach Puffer.

Here is an interview with the Adrien Martinez, on of our winners of Cycle 2:

  1. What was your project?                                                                                                                                                               We created an app that tracks expiration dates on foods, the app also gives you recipe ideas for the foods that are about to expire.                                                                                                                                                                                        
  2. How does it feel winning?                                                                                                                                                               I didn’t expect to win, but I would say that it feels great.                                                                                                               
  3. What were some of your thoughts on having to present at Purdue?                                                                                      I liked knowing that the people in the room were actually interested what the idea that we have to share.
