Locus Health Problem Statement
People who are educated about their health will make better choices and live happier, healthier lives. Healthier people are less likely to need to go to the doctor or hospital and so they reduce healthcare costs for themselves, insurers, hospitals and the government. Think about what would be an interesting and fun way for you to learn about your health and be reminded to make healthy choices? Design a game, website, or other solution that could be used to engage others in a similar way.
Mozilla Problem Statement
We want to help students and educators level-up their web skills in problem-solving real-world problems like censorship, cyberbullying, and threats to Net Neutrality in order to ‘Fight for the Open Web’. The big idea is to represent the Open Web inside Minecraft and to use the game as a tool for teaching others about how the web works through adventure, exploration, narrative, and play.
WillowTree Problem Statement
Our environment shapes who we are (especially who we become as we're growing up), but we shape our environment right back. We want to help students find a way to improve our local community for the betterment of all. Technology and design can lower barriers to participation. For instance, it's easier to text someone than it is to write them a letter. How can you use technology to reduce friction around an existing community effort? We want you to make access and participation in community easier.
UVA BME Problem Statement
Diabetes is a disease in which the body fails to produce enough insulin or resists the insulin produced. Since insulin is a key hormone for regulating blood glucose levels, many individuals with diabetes have trouble controlling their blood sugar. This is an issue because having too high or too low blood sugar can be not only unhealthy, but dangerous. Hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose, is a common condition among people with diabetes. If left untreated, severe hypoglycemic conditions can result in coma or death. Develop a noninvasive system to detect for and alert the user of hypoglycemia using physical symptoms.
