Week 9 was a blast for us, it was the second instalment of the "When Idea Meets Frugal Technology" Series, this time, it's our very own Thilina teaching us Quick Prototyping, with cardboard of course. Cardboard you say? YES! CARDBOARD!
Another week passes by at the SIGHT Camp and Campers are starting to up their game and come up with ideas for next semester. We have 2 teams working on diabetic retinopathy detection in Indonesia, 2 on healthy snacks for Cambodian kids, 2 on purifying water in Guizhou, 1 on helping rare disease patients in Hong Kong and 1 on hand sanitation in Cambodia. Yesterday they presented their first ideas and some do indeed look very promising! We shall have 2 prototyping workshops coming up in the coming 2 weeks, they are both full but check them out anyways!
is a 1-semester long non-credit bearing program, where SIGHT Campers are exposed to a myriad of global health issues via engaging with NGOs. Campers will follow-up on issues they find interest in, and from them develop solutions to solve these issues. The Camp is an accelerator of these ideas, providing workshops on design thinking, prototyping, product development, etc. The best ideas will stay and become fully-fledged SIGHT Projects in the Spring Semester.
