Problem Statement

How might we decrease the growth of anxiety in school children so it doesn't impact employment and well being in early adulthood?


Customer / Problem

The issue that we are addressing is children getting overly distracted and stressed in the classroom environment. This stress and distraction commonly leads to anxiety.
Our target customer is primarily school children aged 12-18 that are likely to get distracted in the classroom and who might be dealing with large amounts of stress.


Solution

Our solution is a pencil that has customisable materials on it that children can fidget with. This means they can fidget with this rather than other things that actually distract them from their work. Our pidget fencils are made out of recycled plastic so it is environmentally friendly.
