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

Our Team chose this challenge because there is a housing crisis going on in Ireland right now.

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

From our research, we discovered that the housing crisis in Ireland is worse then we thought and the cost of living crisis is making it worse

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero is LeBron James. He Faced many challenges growing up. He was born in Akron, Ohio on December 30th 1984. He grew up in Akron where he had a difficult childhood. His father was an ex-con who wasn't there when he grew up. His family was poor and had a tough time. Fortunately, his basketball coach, Frankie Walker, took LeBron under his wing and let him stay with his family where he could get away from the projects and focus on school and basketball.

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

If his father wasn't absent he would have had a better childhood.

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

One solution we are considering is a service where you could hire a camper for a day or more where you could take a shower and sleep in private

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

How big should the camper be.
