Subteam members participating in the Innovation Design Challenge have been incredibly hard at work this season. The Innovation Design Challenge asks that teams identify a problem or opportunity and design a solution to help people (or a community of people) keep, regain, or achieve optimum physical and/or mental health and fitness through active play or movement. This particular challenge has been embraced by our team members, sparked creative discussions, led to innovative thinking and has provided opportunities to meet with professionals to gain insight and build business plans as the team addresses this challenge.
After a multitude of brainstorming sessions the Miracle Workerz decided to address this challenge by using augmented reality in order to create a specialized game aimed at engaging individuals who are wheelchair bound. The sub team hopes that their specific plan will increase movement, as well as mental health and fitness by partnering with non disabled individuals.
More detailed information will be shared once the judging phase of this challenge concludes. The team has been persistent in developing a result that meets this challenge and will be of the utmost benefit to the community.
