  2. The idea that I will be using for my project is the one of creating a large community greenhouse garden. My target audience would be SNC students, faculty and staff. My innovation is valuable because I feel that the folks here at SNC would benefit from being able to experience growing their own food. Also, I think that a large greenhouse could be used for a teaching, and growing food could become an integral part of the curriculum here.

  3. Children as well as adults and even people who suffer from mental disorders such as PTSD, childhood/adult depression, and autism can all benefit from expressing themselves through the arts. After all, everyone copes with hard times and tragedy in different ways. I was eight when my mom passed away and if I didn't have art and music in my life I would have been a very different person. The arts were my salvation and now I'm pursuing them in college to keep them with me for the rest of my life. I want everyone to be able to have an outlet like I had and I believe medical insurance covered art therapy would be beneficial to kids, teens, and young adults as a way to help them through tough times and battles with themselves.

    Sierra Nevada College Athletic Center
    The students and faculty of Sierra Nevada College are members of a highly athletic environment. Whether you are a member of one of the extremely competitive and demanding athletic teams, a member of the rock-climbing, backpacking, water ski, or ski and snowboard club, or if you are an outdoor enthusiast looking to get in shape and learn basic rock climbing techniques, a SNC Athletic Center would benefit your experience at this college. I propose that Sierra Nevada College invests in a student run, on campus, Athletic Center with state of the art gym and rock climbing equipment for its athletes, students, faculty and “friends of the college”. This year SNC granted 250 students with $80, 9 month passes to the local rock climbing, athletic gym in Incline Village called High Altitude. Our student body consists of over 1000 people. Over 500 of those are undergraduates and 52% of our students live on campus. I greatly appreciate the schools effort to offer us access to gyms in town and High Altitude’s generosity for giving select students access to a high quality gym, however, there were only 250 passes available, and over 100 of them went to student athletes. I was among the many student athletes who waited hours in line to secure a coveted pass. Like others, I was late for class to secure one. 75% of our students are left with a charge of $57 a month if they want to work out at the same gym. Having an Athletic Center on campus would benefit the entire community. Every student, faculty member and possibly “friends of SNC” would have access to the facility and all would benefit from the technology.

  5. What I'm going to research about is creating a garden that SNC students would take care of. The food that they produce would go to people who are in need and he dinning hall. This would help the community and help students learn how to grow their own vegetables. This would hopefully start out as a club, but maybe turn into a class that students could get a credit for.

  6. Innovative Challenge Idea:
    Campsite for Homeless
    Compartmentalized Housing Units (CHU's) were used all over AFG for soldier housing. There are at least 7,500(estimated) homeless in NV right now.
    If we set up "camps" for the homeless, they would be off the streets. If a temp work office was set up at the camps the homeless would have easier access to daily work.
    As long as the homeless accepted daily work, they could stay at the camp for free.

    Each person would set up long term objectives and "We" would do our best to find them long term solutions.

  7. Social Innovation

    One dispenser that takes all kinds of trash and sorts them.

    People are lazy and getting more and more careless with putting their trash in the correct bins and trash cans. I want to develop one dispenser that can take all of it so there is no waste being mixed with the other and that no recycling is being mixed with trash at out land fills. I want to eliminate all possibilities of all kinds of trash being mixed together and making more pollution and more waste intend of working hard to reuse what we have.

    Target Audience- Caring citizens that want to make a difference.

  8. Boat/Motor Vehicle Airbags
    Core 101

    Everyday people jump into their cars and drive to work, school, the store, etc. When doing this, I would like to think that most people are concerned with their own safety and drive accordingly. One thing most people don’t worry about is their airbags. They have become almost a standard in todays automobile industry. My question is, why don’t all motor vehicles carry some sort of airbag system that can protect other motorist. For example; a sailor sets out to sea by himself in his sailboat. The winds that day blew in a little too strong and ended up tipping the boat leaving him stranded in the water with all but a life jacket. This sailor would in a bad situation and not many ways to make it better. But what if the boat had an airbag system that deployed once tipped? I have seen research on bike helmets that deploy an airbag from a scarf the second that you start to fall. I believe that this technology can be transferred over to more motor vehicles possible helping save lives.

  9. Core 101
    Programmable Personal GPS Chips

    Many times people who have special belongings end up loosing those items long before it is time to give them up. I have come up with an idea that will help any person who has special belongings that they dont want to loose. Advanced private GPS locator Chips come in Packs and let the user provide a passcode allowing them to be private along with sticking them to any special belonging that the user doesnt want to loose for good. Once the item is lost you will log in your created passcode to find your lost belonging.

    Innovative Idea: Tuning Table Taken to an Extreme

    The generic waxing table consist of a lightweight metal frame, a table top, and with additional options of an extension rack and/or vices. Well what if you took the tuning table to a new level? Keep all the same elements of the original tuning table then add extending options to turn the tuning table to a duel wax prepping hot box. So just make all the elements of the table top heat resistant with breakdown walls that can fold up and form an air sealed…oven basically, but not for brownies, but for your skis and snowboards. This process is the same as hot waxing your skis or snowboard but after laying the wax on the board you can bake it in this oven device called a hot box. This results in the pores of the base of your skis or snowboard expanding and accepting more of the wax better then simply ironing on the wax.
    So, a tuning table with removable vices that expands into a hot box. The hot box has to reach extreme heat temperatures so it will need an electric source but in some way, that is still being outlined, the heat used from the hot box can then be stored and reused to generate electricity for other uses of the tuning table, such as an Iron. Another element of the tuning table will be that it has a sleek and compact design to keep it lightweight and secure for extreme travel to keep up with athletes.

  11. For some of us freshmen living in the dorms this is our first time having to share a room with one or may two other people. It is no surprise that you and your roommate(s) have different class schedules. You may have an afternoon class but your roommate may have a class at 8 am. You just want to sleep in but their alarm goes off at 7 and you can not get back to sleep. But what if they had a vibration wristband that they could sync to their cell phone. This product is not only useful to college students but siblings, couples, or even family vacations. So no more dealing with cranky roommates, angry girlfriends that didn't get there "beauty sleep" or annoying family members.

  12. Visiting an aquarium is often a fun and educational experience, but like all animals, the fish that swim leisurely in the gallons of water behind the glass produce great amounts of waste, and the filters require tremendous amounts of energy to filter it out. A greater problem affecting our world is the amount of resources spent on agriculture. Aquaponics is a technology that cycles waste from aquatic life to provide nutrients to plants that in turn clean the water that returns to the tank. By utilizing this alternative form of agriculture, a slight solution to the two problems can be reached.

  13. For my innovative idea I want to create a organiation that will help to preserve cultures around the world. How will people benifit from this organization? Diversity is important in our lifes because this separates us from others and helps us to see where we belong in our community. As more and more cultures are erased from our world, it makes it even harder to have diversity. Diversity is an very important in larger community because it connects us to our ancesters. People would benifit from having more diversity in the world because having different cutures means that tradition, religion, and language will live on.

  14. When working on old trucks and cars you have to jump in and out of the vehicle to test drive it. Seeing how as you're working on a project truck it probably doesn't have good interior or a door handle. This causes you to have to roll down the window and open the door from the outside. A lot of the time the handle to roll the window down will fall off. Typically, what you could do is get your blender and take the whisks off and place the whole where the whisks would go onto the window knob, put the hand blender on and boom, power windows in your old 1978 pickup.
    Having a battery operated or rechargeable hand tool that would have the end like a blender piece. A pocket size detachable power window tool.

  15. Innovative Idea problem statement-

    Teleportation: If teleportation was invented it would be possible for human beings to travel vast distances without physically traveling thorough the spaces in between your origin and destination. However, this is a very complex and difficult invention as it completely defies the laws of physics. In order for teleportation to be possibly and feasible you will need to have the ability to scan oneself down to a minuscule level at point a, passing your body through a computerized system and arriving at point b where your body is ultimately built back up within fractions of a second. At this time, scientists have assessed that teleportation is possible on the most minuscule level, now the question is how to expand this idea?

  16. the idea to create a program to support food recycle and proper eating for young adults in our area right now. Come up with a program to support healthy eating portions and recycling to reduce waste. Start this up locally then expand.

  17. Magnetic Bicycle Pedals.
    In the bike world there are two main ways to ride your pedals. Almost all bikes come with flat pedals. Flat pedals do not require you to be permanently attached. Therefore it makes it very easy to slip a pedal when riding difficult terrain. Anyone who has slipped a pedal will tell you that it wasn't fun, mainly due to scrapes inflicted to the shin. The other method is clipless pedals. The pedals require a cleat on the shoe that clips your foot to the pedal for the whole ride. The downside to this is falling. When you fall with these pedals it is very hard to get out of them and the bike ends up tumbling with you. My solution is magnetic Flat pedals. A pedal that requires no special way of releasing the bond between the pedal and your foot. It will also prevent from the dreaded pedal slips and clipless pedal crashes.

  18. My innovative idea was to make a 100% green snowboard company. There already is green snowboard companies, but my company would be 100% green. i would use recycled wood like bamboo for the core. with soy bean rubber for the sidewalls and strips that run along the length of the board. even down to the base and epoxy, everything would be green and environmentally friendly.

  19. My Idea was a clothing company that made its products out of recycled materials and gave a percentage of the profit to local foundations. Like if you opened up a shop in tahoe city you would give a percentage of your profits to the Keep Tahoe blue foundation and keep things local.

  20. My innovative idea is a food printer. This printer would have the capability to print almost any item of food. This would change the huge problem which is hunger. It would eliminate the starvation and hunger and make food available to people who previously did not have access to food. Along with that, you could put printers in places to which shipping food is a hard thing to do. You also would not have to ship food to troops, workers or other people in places far from resources.

    Best Idea
    Heads Up
    The idea that I have involves new technology, would also create new jobs, infrastructure, and a service that has never been offered before to both snowboarders and skiers giving them more on mountain time with their friends and families. The idea that I have is to make a heads up display that is housed inside the goggle of the rider, and then to have this interact with a customers phone or to help ski patrol locate someone who has been injured on the mountain. My idea is to have different indicators that guide the rider to the correct trails and to keep people out of harms way. This would also create new data that a resort could follow, gaining insight to what their customers needs really are. What areas are used the most. And to be able to offer some of the hard data to the customers as well. This could have untold applications I believe with the right direction and teamwork.

  34. Annotated Bibliography

    1.) Barbee, Jim R. "Agriculture in Nevada." Agriculture in Nevada. N.p., n.d. Web. 15 Sept. 2014.
    →This was a helpful resource because it talked about agriculture in Nevada and it gave me some information about what would help me create our own little farm at SNC and what the issues with it would be.

    2.) "Food Rescue." Wasted Food Jonathan Bloom on Food Waste and How It Can Be Avoided. N.p., n.d. Web. 15 Sept. 2014.
    → “Food Rescue” helped me in my research because it talks about taking the food from farms that would have just gotten thrown away and giving to people in need. This goes along with my ides to create a garden at SNC and donate half the proceeds to local homeless shelters.

    3.) Misa, Misa. "Motivations for Organic Farming in Tourist Regions: A Case Study in Nepal." 16.1 (2014): 181-93. Literati. Web. 15 Sept. 2014. .
    → This was relevant to my research because my idea is creating a small farm in a very tourist infested place like incline. Specifically why it would be better to create a organic farm.

    4.) "9 Rules for Starting Your Own Farm." The Art of Manliness. Screen Four, 2014. Web. 15 Sept. 2014.
    → This was helpful because it gave me a lot of helpful information about actually starting a little farm at SNC instead of the general information about farming.

    5.) "Nevada Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables." About. N.p., 2014. Web. 15 Sept. 2014.
    → This website is going to be very helpful when thinking about what we are going to grow in this garden. It tells us when all the vegetables can grow in Nevada.

    "MyHomework Student Planner." App. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Sept. 2014.
    This app is similar to what I am thinking of just less interactive between students to students and student to teachers.

    "MyHomework 5.1 Update." Vimeo. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Sept. 2014.
    This video shows the layout on their app. To me it seams to monotone with the same light shades of blue everything looks like a blur. Also important events don’t stand out

    "How to Make an IPhone App." WikiHow. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Sept. 2014.
    This website explains how to create an app and the process of it all. It breaks down each part and gives detailed steps

    "How to Create a Free Website." WikiHow. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Sept. 2014.
    This website is similar to the one to create an app but this one creates a website with the same set up and step process.
    "Color Wheel Pro - See Color Theory in Action." Color Wheel Pro: Color Meaning. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Sept. 2014.
    This website explains color theory which I think is important in creating an app or website.
