Tools like School in a Box help establish a sense of normalcy in camps by providing creative outlets for individual expression and safe spaces for learning. School in a Box contains materials to set up a makeshift school for 80 students. Seen as part of the UNICEF display at MoMA in NY.

A new way to show if you're over the limit
DermaTec?s alcohol detection patch is worn directly on the skin, much like nicotine patches worn by smokers.
