For Cohort 1's final projects, we presented students with a community problem- the elderly are expected to outnumber their children for the first time in U.S. history by 2030.
Next, we asked them to use Design Thinking to find a solution.
Students researched the problem, identified community stakeholders, developed surveys, created empathy maps, and built prototypes in Weeks 9 through 14 of the program.
Here are their final presentations given on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019.
