About the solution
One time, at the hospital, Nick saw a little girl having a difficult time with her IV pole. That’s when he had the idea of building build IV pole “lily pads”. This solution is a skateboard-like device that allows patients to get around the hospital easier. Instead of struggling to walk, a child could ride on the colorful platform. The board can be customised according to the child’s preferences.
Nick planned was to use time in his shop class at Auburn Riverside High School to build one for every child at the hospital. Though he never got the chance to do it, students at Auburn Riverside carried on with the project, called the Lily Pad Project.
