Innovations in Aging: An interdepartmental charrette experience: Join a diverse group of innovative students to devise solutions for building advanced living strategies for the aging population. Undergraduate and graduate students in all majors are encouraged to participate. A charrette is a meeting in which different stakeholders take on a project, resolve conflicts, and create solutions. Participants will be placed in groups of four based on their academic interests, and will create and propose features of a smart home for aging adults. If participants already have team members in mind they are welcome to sign up as a team. All groups will receive prizes for participation. Each participant will enjoy the opportunity to build their resume, create with a team, meet with stakeholders, increase their knowledge, and explore new ways to innovate.
