The 2 takeaway were first of all, cut out all the parts and the second was to plan all the sizes of the pieces before cutting it out.
2) I have faced a few difficulties.
a) i could not think of an idea at first.
b) I did not know what my product will look like after i had thought of the idea.
c) My model had a serious defect that i could not retract and extend the flap of my product.
d) Some parts of my product was weak and was falling apart.
3) Here was how i overcame the problems.
a) I used some idea generating skills and thought out of the box to find an idea.
b) I spent some time trying to visualize what the product will look like. Then i thought of all the different aspects of the product and i drew then on the mahjong paper which was given to us by Miss Seah.
c) I once again I thought out of the box and figured out how to solve the problem.
d) I was at home when the product started to fall apart. I taped it and when i got to school, I glued it with multiple layers of glue.

The corridor is too crammed and this will cause some difficulty for the elderly as they walk from one end of the corridor to another.They might trip over the stands of the rack. The front rack is affixed to the wall and so it cannot move and it will then protrude out of the wall and thus injuring the elderly is they hit it.

This air conditioner is placed at best possible place so that the user need not to stretch too much to change so settings of the air conditioner. The signal of the remote can reach the air-conditioner easier.
this television set is large enough for the user so that he/she can use it with comfort with out straining his/her eyes
This bed is low so that even if the user falls over, so that he/she does not get feel much pain and get injured but it is high enough so that the person will have ease in getting out of it.
One way the CAI report recommending to make our public housing more elderly-friendly
It says that HDB should work with market players to offer reverse mortgage schemes for elderly HDB flat lessees at commercial terms, to provide another option for seniors to derive some income from their homes to meet expenditure in old age, without having to move out of their homes.
TWO ways on how we can ensure that the quality of elderly care here in Singapore is affordable
1) The clinics can help them by providing subsidized fees for their services.
2) Give those elder people who do not have a income source a monthly allowance .
THREE things that I can do, as an SST student, to help overcome these elderly challenges
1) I can organize a fund-raising event to raise money for the Elderly.
2) I can design a machine which can allow the elderly person to walk or move across any surface.
3) I can assist a few elderly people with their needs.

We need to conserve water, the four national taps supply us with water and NEWater's method of supplying water.
3) I learned that NEWater is very safe for human consumption but yet NEWater does not advertise about their products and sell it to industries and commercial places instead and that NEWater undergoes 3 stages of cleansing.
4) By actively participating in conserving water, or if possible, improve the methods or even develop new methods.
