Tech Directions Inventors Contest – Ideas must be received by January 31. 
We’ve just learned that famed professor and inventor Phineas T. Quirkbotham and his aspiring inventor nephew Thaddeus feel extremely concerned about the large number of people who end up homeless as a result of natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, and storms. The pro-fessor notes that millions can be displaced after each such incident, and, as a result, he and Thaddeus see an urgent need for effective and inexpensive portable emergency shelters that can provide basic protection against the elements and disease that often follow natural catastrophes.

They are committed to solving this problem and ask technology students to submit their own creative solutions. How would your students solve the challenge of providing temporary housing for displaced persons? To keep costs low, could they design emergency shelters that incorporate the use of recycled materials?
