SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Affordable fidget jewellery

My project targets youth struggling with mental health by giving them an outlet to use their nervous energy and help them focus in a discreet way. It does this through allowing them to fidget in a non-distracting way which can help with focus during school and assist their endeavours in having good mental health.

Charities use wristbands as fund raisers. Maybe it would be worth contacting this company and a mental health charity to develop something different from what's already available https://www.exelprint.com.au/wristbands-for-charity-fundraisers?

You could also contact this company that had a great wristband idea however COVID has killed it

This is a good concept. The band can also help raise awareness of mental health. It can also encourage people going through similar situations to start conversations with one another and help form a supportive community.

Excellent concept, have you seen Jock from Masterchef championing such jewellery? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8519373/Jock-Zonfrillo-explains-carries-beads-MasterChef.html


This idea has a long history.

This is cool, I would love to see what features you incorporate, eg ball bearings in a maze I could chase around a mandala groove, or repopable cells like that repoppable pop paper made from plastic, Or rough smooth textures.  Have you researched what sorts of features people find helpful?

Hi Amy, hope all is well with you and your family.

Congratulations on getting to the submission point of your MDP journey. Your project looks fantastic and I hope that being part of the UpRising initiative has been rewarding and meaningful for you. 

As we wrap up the trial phase of the UpRising initiative and head towards the awards night in November I have a few quick questions.  If you could answer these in a comment below that would be so great. We want to understand how UpRising assisted you and also help us best prepare for next year's cohort of designers.


1.      What were two interesting things that you experienced or found as a result of being part of the UpRising? 

2.      How did UpRising help you with your project?

3.      What would you like to do with your project and what would help you get there?

4.      How did seeing other UpRising projects affect your designing and learning experience? 

5.      What would you like to see added to the UpRising initiative to better help next year's students?

 

One last thing, can you add in a ‘Start to Finish’ photo of your project? Stitch a photo of early drawing or prototype next to an image of your finished product and update your post with this image.

Congratulations once again and looking forward to seeing you in November. You have done an amazing job and we are very proud of the 2021 cohort. 

See you soon

Congratulations on all of your hard work this year and for being the first year 12 design students to be part of The UpRising.  The 8 judges have been busy going through all the major design projects to decide which projects should be awarded hundreds of dollars in seed funding and mentoring, to take their project to the next level. The judges have used a points system, 3 points for the project they felt was the most impressive, 2 points for a second outstanding project and 1 point for a project that really resonated with them. Three projects will be awarded Seed funding and mentoring 

  • First Place $1000 Seed funding

  • Second place 750

  • Third place 500


The winners will be assisted with the continued development of their project next year by the very cool company Nectir


We are holding an Awards night to announce the winners and we would love to have you all there. It’s online so you can join in from wherever you are. 6pm - 7pm Thursday evening 9th December.

Looking forward to seeing you there.


Wishing you the best of luck with your final exams. Awards night is on the 9th December
