Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose the challenge, because the topic interests us. We think, that we can really change something about housing problems of people living with disabilities.

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

We did not know that there were so few houses that are universally accessible in Ireland. We also did not know that the prices for products making houses more accessible for people living with disabillities are that high.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero is Clara Oneill. She is a women, she is 32

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

We would make her in a wheelchair

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

Make wheel chair accessible rooms. Make doors accessible, for example bigger. Make showers wheelchair accessible, by making them roll-in showers. Make garages wheelchair accessible, ramps to get into cars. Put handles onto beds, so people bound to wheelchairs can enter.

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.

Do you think our idea is good?
