Last year we wrote about Stanford University's first Design Challenge and the winner's colorful "EatWell" table setting, deigned to help those with cognitive deficits to eat without assistance. Last year the competition attracted 52 teams from 15 countries.
Stanford's Center on Longevity recently announced its 2014-15 Design Challenge, focusing on mobility issues for older adults. Entries are due December 5. One goal is to reach more students, encouraging greater awareness of aging issues and the values of intergenerational collaboration.
Hat tip to my colleague Professor Laurel Terry, who shared the latest news from her son's university.
