In 10 year from now I will be in college. I want to make an invention that could change the wh*** world. Facebook was created in college, so I want to create an invention like that. I would be in college when Alchemy calls me to help with the Tokyo food crisis.

In Ten Years........

Ten years from now, I will probably be in a nice house, with a pretty decently paying job. I would probably still be in the US. I would change the world by basically doing my part living a good life, following my dreams of one day becoming something big and by being myself.

My Favorite Secret

This is my favorite secret: 'keep learning from your customers'

This would help me change the world because if my customers don't like the way I do something, then I will try to change what I do; to satisfy that particular customer.

In 2020, I will make World Water Day a fun time for kids and everyone with the use of Ned's ride of pumping clean water (mentioned in this mission) to people while also making a rollar coaster with pumps on the floor that pump water just with one touch of a wheel. I would also add something for smaller children known as the pump race. This pump race would have five water pumps lined up and a rubber duck on the spout. On go the kids would pump water from the ground and try to get the duck to…

Teach Skills

My favorite secret is to provide skills, not just finished technologies. As a teacher, I believe in teaching my students how to examine problems and look for ways to solve them, to think creatively, and to work collaboratively. There is no way to know what jobs my students will need to be prepared for in the future or what problems they will need to be able to solve but if I can show them how to examine problems and brainstorm and collaborate to find solutions then I consider my job a…

Thinking Like A Child

Children have the most beautiful, creative minds out there. That is why my favorite tip for social innovation. As people age into adults more worries settle in, and they are not as open to creative ideas. They might have doubt in their thoughts. Children, they don't have to worry. They are not afraid to think outside the box, and I want to be like that. Of course, you could still consider me a child, but I want to stay like that (thought wise). Thinking like a child helps you with social…

Imagine 1

I would be living in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. I would be living a very stable life with 2 kids and a very nice brother. I would be in work when Alchemy calls me to help with the food crisis in 2020.

Where would I be

In ten years I imagine myself in trying to graduate from college and get a good job. I probably would be trying to change the world at that time by first getting a new job and find a way to change the world.

Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.)\

I think this is a very good secret to have in mind because if you're helping anypeople in any way, if you try to change their culture, themn they could not like it and would have no idea how to use it. If you just give them the thing their using, but better, I think they would be very grateful with that instead of…

Learn 1

Listen to the right people. Okay, so you probably don’t know what it’s like to carry fifty pounds of firewood on your head. Well, don’t pretend that you do. Talk to someone who has done it. I believe that the key to innovation in international development is truly understanding the problem, and using your imagination is not good enough.

I think this is a great secret to know because if you learn from an experienced person you won't have to make the same mistakes that they have and try…

Water Crisis

I really like the merry-go round idea because it allows the children to have fun while having fun with each other and get the water they desperatly need. My peers have come up with an idea of a "water donut" imagine a tire filled with water that can be used to transport the water from far away rivers without the heavy carring for miles.

2020's life

In 2020, I will be living in a house in Japan. I will be a manga and anime artist. When Alchemy calls me, I will write a fun, world wide best selling manga and an anime. People all over the world will read and watch it and help change the world. I will also go to Tokyo and create a dance train.

Making Clean Water!

Earthwater® Stencils, Ltd. Company sells storm drain stencils that help schools and community members prevent water pollution. I think that is a great solution to get cleaner water. This will help lots of people and animals. Because of this project, students can also paticipate in the processes of making a cleaner Earth. I completely agreed with this program.

A Secret of Social Innovation

Inside Exhibit A (http://designinafrica.wordpress.com/2008/10/23/innovation-in-africa-tips/), I found many secrets for social innovation but one particularly stood out. That secret was "Try living for a week on $2 a day". I found that secret the most striking because it showed that for innovation to work, solutions must be able to reach all people, including people who live on $2 or less a day. This…

1.Innovation (often) comes from constraint (If you’ve got very few resources, you’re forced to be very creative in using and reusing them.)

My favorite secret was that innovation comes from constraint because people in rich countris like the U.S. are used to eatings 3 meals a day. While people in Africa live of $2 a day. If you eat 3 meals a day and suddenly you are living on $2 then you would die because your not used to it. If you don't have that many resources then you make the best out of it.

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
