Reflection - The Elderly Challenge

#1. What have you learnt?
The elderly face a lot of problems in their daily lives that we do not really bother to notice. Almost every one of these problems can be solved with the help of innovators. I also learnt that it is easier and yet more difficult to work in a group rather than individually. It is easier as more creative ideas would be suggested and the final product will be a much better product than creating a product individually. However, it s more difficult because as a group, we would have to collaborate and work together. We would also need to communicate with each other.

#2. What are the difficulties encountered?
Some ideas I came up with are made of materials which are difficult to find.

#3. How did you overcome the difficulties?
I thought of other materials to replace those materials and also came up with other ideas that is made of materials which are easier to find.
