Stanford University's Center on Longevity Offers Design Challenge for Students

September 24 is the kick-off date for a world-wide Design Competition offered by Stanford's Center on Longevity.   The Stanford Report explains the competition is intended to encourage innovation that helps the rising tide of seniors:

"The design contest solicits entries from student teams worldwide and is aimed at finding solutions that help keep people with cognitive impairments independent as long as possible."

The final presentations are scheduled for April 2014 with judging by a panel of academics, industry professionals, nonprofit groups and investors.  The competition offers prizes, including the top prize of $10,000.

Hat tip to Professor Laurel Terry, for news on this interesting challenge.
