The Problem

The problem that we have decided to address is the fact that children do not have the knowledge of emergency situations. We are using the principles of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to teach kids skills to use when they are in an emergency situation, such as a power outage.

Our Plan

We will be going around to different places and events, teaching kids what to do in these situations. To begin, as we must start small, we will be teaching them how to make a water filtration straw. We will also be asking for donations, in order to create donation kits for homeless shelters. This incorporates the idea that they do not have power, and we will be helping them along with educating children.
