Our Rapid Innovation for Public Impact course, based on the Hacking For Defense syllabus, has announced the possible problem statements that students can hope to be a part of in the fall! We are very excited to have our students working directly with these sponsors to create innovative solutions.
The challenges range from aerospace considerations, to public health outcomes, to creating interagency cooperation. Our student teams will consist of a wide range of disciplines in order to help foster the kinds of solutions that can make a real impact.
We want students from public policy, engineering, business, law, psychology, and many more disciplines to come together to show off the true power in the diversity of The Ohio State University.
Our Fall 2019 problem statements are:
- Designing new regulations for commercial space flight launches
- Improving public health outcomes with collaborative planning between state government and hospitals
- Mapping the vast network of international actors with space capabilities
- Coordinating drone swarms in order to track toxic plumes
- Overcoming image distortion in order to identify real threats
- Sharing ‘situational intelligence’ during state emergencies across multiple agencies
- Rejuvenating urban neighborhoods through creative zoning
- Finding lost satellites in space
- Diagnosing a satellite’s instability
- Responding to a flu pandemic outbreak
We are excited to get started with these problem statements and can’t wait to show you what our students come up with.
