THE PROBLEM RESEARCHING THE “CORE FACTOR” In order to have a small, simple product deal with a big problem, researching the most relevant factor that would largely influence different problem was the key.

DEATH

ABSENCE IN SCHOOL

DIARRHEA

LACK OF BATHING

RIVER POLLUTION

CORE FACTOR OPEN DEFECATION

USING DIRTY STOVES

HOUSEHOLD BACTERIA

THE PROBLEM CORE FACTOR : People are not prioritizing Sanitation. 1. “India’s first national program to increase access to rural sanitation at scale, the Central Rural Sanitation Program, was launched in 1986. The CRSP focused on one kind of technology – pour flush toilets – and provided subsidies to generate demand for sanitation.” “This approach failed because people defecate in the open not because they can’t afford a toilet without subsidy but because Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India safe sanitation is not a felt need. In the ultimate analysis, sanitation is about habit, not constructing toilets.”

2. “Everyday, it is estimated that nearly 4,000 children most under five years of age die across the developing world. Hundreds of other children adults are sick or are unable to go to work or school.” WSP : Water and Sanitation Program - “The New Wave”

“The issue to be addressed is behavior change, rather than construction of infrastructure.” Christian Park

By promoting products that educate children as HEALTH AGENTS

PERSONAL HYGIENE

PUBLIC SANITATION

Which would influence the values of their PARENTS and bring change to the whole COMMUNITY

THE PROPOSAL STORYLINE

1. Device

Cherished, hand-held device Carried along with the child

Project CleanEDU

2. Teacher educate child through the device

3. Child continues using it outside school

The device works as a sanitation tool at the same time teaching children about sanitation.

4. Parent interact with the child through the device

Parents get influenced by participating into the interaction.

CONCEPT 1. DEVICE

09

The child carries the sanitizer and uses it in certain periods of his day. Each time the child uses the sanitizer it will clean the monster inside and help it grow.

CONCEPT

2. TEACHER EDUCATE THE CHILD The device will initiate “Germs Attack Time� based on the time of recess, lunch, entering the classroom and so forth. The monster will only grow when the sanitizer is used at that attack time. In that way children will learn to use the sanitizer at a specific point of time, not abusing it.

Germs Attack ! 5 minutes Remaining Project CleanEDU

Teachers will educate the children to use the device during that time, teaching kids the importance of washing hands as well as cleaning the monster.

CONCEPT

3. CHILD USES IT OUTSIDE SCHOOL Children can interact with one another by competing the monsters. The monster with more strength and cleanness will win the match.

CONCEPT

3. CHILD USES IT OUTSIDE SCHOOL Although the tangible interaction of the device comes from unified, hand-santizing action, different monsters will be present to teach children about various environmental sanitation. For example, Instead of having “Germs Attack”, land monster would often get attacked and suffer by garbages and excretion. In that way the children will learn that he/she shouldn’t defecate or throw garbages outdoors to a certain degree.

I don’t like smoke coming from bad stoves!

CONCEPT

3. CHILD USES IT OUTSIDE SCHOOL The different monsters will be offered through cartridges that have different texture patterns engraved according the the characteristic of the monster. Children may choose to gather all the monsters and unlock achievements.

CONCEPT

4. CHILD USES IT TO INFLUENCE PARENTS

09

Parents check out the digit number of device which indicates the usage of the device during the day, and the growth of the monster. They will affirm that they have examined their children’s usage of sanitizer to the school. Children with good performance will gain new achievements such as getting a new cartridge.

In this process children will communicate to their parents about the characteristics of monster, how to make them clean and etc. The mutual interaction will lead the parents to gain interest on the value of sanitation.

CONSIDERATIONS

TANGIBILITY I FEASIBILITY I AFFORDABILTY Sanitizer: sample size of purel- It is 1 fl oz = 30ml. A compact size suitable for a hand-held device. Can last more than 2-3 weeks for a child. The form languge is still in consideration, but it would be a shape that wins the attention of children at the same time maintains resonance to the whole theme of the project. Also in the form a hook will be included in order for the children not to lose their device.

CONSIDERATIONS

TANGIBILITY I FEASIBILITY I AFFORDABILTY E-ink Screen Display A paper-like high contrast and appearance, Ultra-low power consumption, A thin, feather-light form. E Ink technology is ideal for many consumer and industrial applications, spanning eBooks, eNewspapers, eTextbooks, watches, smartcards, electronic shelf labels, battery/memory indicators and public information and promotional signs.

Germs Attack !

It would lead to longer lasting batteries and chances of implementing self-recharding technology.

CONSIDERATIONS

TANGIBILITY I FEASIBILITY I AFFORDABILTY Universality of the Product “try to find something universal, non-geography-specific, if you can, so that it isn’t a sort of “design to save the poor kids in India” as it is “just good education for everyone.” - Emily Pilloton, Project H Design.

BOGO & Tom’s Shoes style If you get one, you could help children in developing countries get the same product.
