Ellen Smith, Project List, 1/30/2012
|1. Project Health.
||The focus is to get a greater number of people in the population to receive flu vaccinations.
If I could really expand public awareness and knowledge on the importance and benefits of the
vaccination, then I could broaden the project to other vaccinations and increase funding in public health.
|2. Second Chance.
||Every year there are adults and kids that become homeless and struggle to survive.
I thought that I might be able to find funding to build more shelters with an emphasis on
providing job training and job searches.
|3. Laundry Made Simple.
||I hate doing laundry so I came up with this random idea to have a 2 in 1 washer and dryer.
Not sure if it is possible, but once the washing cycle is done then the machine would
automatically switch to dryer mode. It would take up less space and could possibly be made Eco friendly.
|4. Modified Handcuffs.
||I grew up surrounded by family and friends in law enforcement and just always thought
it would be helpful to have handcuffs that can extend and retract back together with the
push of a button. It was a random idea, but instead of the police trying to wrestle with
criminals to get their hands together, the handcuffs could just do it for them.
