Problem Statements For 5th to 6th Std

Help the nature around you

Trees, animals, birds, water bodies etc. are all being impacted by the presence of humans. We need to preserve the natural habitat around with innovative and technical solutions. Prepare tools and/or design of the city to enable everyone to coexist without stepping into the other’s boundaries.

Use technology to support your teacher

Teachers are the heart for the society. Use technology to support your teacher, alma-mater or college staff. Initiate discussion with teachers to identify problems that they face while teaching in class and online. Devise solutions to help teachers in various activities like marking attendance, tracking assignments, evaluating mark sheets etc.

Problem Statements For 7th to 10th Std

Enrich life with education

How do we use technology to take appropriate information and provide knowledge to all? Some ways of validating information are by tracing the source (example: Wikipedia takes opinion of people from different cultural and geographical backgrounds to ensure the validity). Students are expected to come up with ways to validate information in the form of hosted material on the internet.

Smart Home, Better Home

Identify smart solutions to enhance your home and support your parents, grandparents, and maids. For instance, speak to your mom about the activities she performs daily at home. Identify ways to reduce her workload and design a technological solution to solve problems to improve lifestyle at your home.

Solutions to remove air pollution

Air pollution is the most important environmental health risk of our times. Air in our cities is becoming hazardous to breathe. Devise a solution to measure indoor air quality and outdoor air quality and provide different kinds of alarm to users in case quality is not up to the mark. Providing ways to control pollution will be an added advantage.

Don’t flush valuable resources

The water scarcity problem is one of the most serious risks the world is facing at every level. Although water covers 71% of the earth’s surface, only 4% is freshwater and only 0.5% of this water is suitable for human consumption. Hence, there is a need to manage the natural resources in a sustainable way. 

  1. To monitor water leakage to avoid water wastage in cities or
  2. Help people to reduce unnecessary consumption of water
