We are finding an ethical solution to overpopulation that centers on female empowerment, education, and increased contraceptive access both locally and globally. We created an interactive, collaborative StoryMap to educate the public on contraceptive accessibility. Our map allows us to project our data for easy visual representation whilst incorporating community input through our survey on contraception and sexual education.
Our grand challenge to solve was the problem of reducing plastic waste. Through thorough research, we have decided to focus our solution on the fungus, Aspergillus tubingensis, and its decomposing properties. This fungus has been found to break down the molecular bonds in plastic materials, speeding up/aiding in the decomposition process. We have used the
Climate change and the overconsumption of plastics are threats to the environment and future generations. Every year, roughly 250,000 tons of wet waste coffee grounds are thrown into landfills, where they decompose and release harmful methane into the atmosphere–further amplifying the effects of climate change. With the 3D printing industry growing so rapidly, our solution
