Summer 2020 Challenges
Challenges to begin in June 2020:

B. The Vaping Epidemic challenge. How might we design the appropriate response to tackle the issue of vaping at its core?

D. The Representations in Redistricting challenge. How might we increase public awareness in the Princeton Gerrymandering Project, and to increase participation and mobilization of local communities to ensure fair representations in the process of redrawing electoral maps? 

E. The Restoration of Identity and Heritage challenge. How might we help redefine how newly-(re)discovered identity and heritage are incorporated or (re)introduced into existing histories? 

*Don't see one that captures your interest? Already started a design-thinking project? Consider helping put together a topic for future Tiger Challenge cohorts: Propose a Topic!

We are assembling multi-disciplinary teams with diverse personalities, backgrounds, and interests. Placement on a team is not solely based on qualifications but also fit.
