The Enlighten Project is a system that seeks to provide low-income areas with lighting at no cost to the community, thereby increasing safety. We propose using a system modeled after the "Free Rice" campaign in order to fund an initiative that donates sustainable solar lighting to communities that could benefit. The Enlighten Project will be a free educational online tool that allows users to prepare for standardized tests, or even just hone their science, vocabulary, and math skills. Ad space on the website will go toward funding lighting for a low income community.

Great idea! That could definitely be an easy, effective way to get a lot of great questions onto the site.

Hi Bettina! We propose partnering with an established educational organization like Khan Academy, College Board, or Kaplan to develop the content and then we would like to post the study questions on a website hosted by a women's nonprofit organization. Did you have something in mind? Thanks for the feedback!

Design For America Cornell commented on An Election Integration into the College Campus (Cornell University)

Just a note: we are thrilled about the comments that were given to us and that we were able to use Open IDEO as a platform to conceptualize making an impact on our campus! Whether we are chosen or not, we applaud everybody's participation. It is truly enlightening to see people working towards a better world through and with design.
