PROBLEM STATEMENTS

Theme : Health and Creative Thinking

To develop a Multiplayer Gaming Application/Animation that focuses on enhancing Emotional Intelligence and fight depression

Overview

Adolescents and people from other age groups have been experiencing deteriorating mental health owing to loneliness, lack of friends, inability to meet people due to very busy lifestyles, and stress. This has resulted in many mental health and emotional disorders including serious depression. Many youngsters commit suicide as they cannot handle depression. Therefore, the challenge is to develop a game or digital application that can help fight depression and alerts an individual if she/he is undergoing any major symptoms of mental health disorder.

Theme : Academics and Enhanced Learning

Helping children learn Letter Sound Association for Early Literacy

Overview

Young children struggle to remember letter sounds and thus face problems in reading. Children are expected to associate letter/s with sounds. For instance, in the word “Purse” the initial sound is “P”. Inability to be able to associate the word with sound leads to problems in reading among children and it helps to make links between the unfamiliar print words to the spoken language. The objective here is to enhance children’s early learning so that they can easily learn and associate letter/sound association and get prepared for early literacy.

Theme : Able for Disables

Design a Dynamic moving toy or animation for teenagers with hearing impairment and wanting to learn about musical notes and beats.

Overview

A moving/vibrating toy may be designed to convert the auditory signal of musical notes and patterns, visuals so as to make people with hearing impairments be able to enjoy and understand music through a different sensory experience

Theme : Sports and Health-Fitness
