Design Challenge: Designing for EducationNovember 26th, 2010

INDEX: calls for faculty, students, and recent graduates to participate in the upcoming INDEX: Design Challenge, developed in close collaboration with and endorsed by UNICEF. The INDEX: Design Challenge has three subthemes, combined with an open challenge: Improved Education Facilities, Sanitation and Hygiene, and Gender Parity in Education.

Improved Education Facilities can improve life in obvious ways by making school an enjoyable experience while increasing learning ability by improving attention.

Sanitation and Hygiene improve life of students with a healthier environment, thereby reducing illnesses and absences.

Gender Parity in Education should ensure that girls get the same opportunity to go to school as boys and thereby improve their lives through equal opportunities, eliminating gender disparity in education.
