EDU problems

Startup Weekend EDU has been built around gathering the most talented people to come together and attack one of the largest and most fundamental problems in the world, the education space. We want to use this forum as a way for people to voice major problems they see and to start discussions on how we can build products to solve them. Also, sort through all the comments and vote up ones you believe need to be addressed the most and that have solutions you believe we could fix. With your help we can make this event one that makes a big impression on the world!

A major problem in the EDU space I see is...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. SMB technology

    SMB technology is a process utilizing several columns to achieve high productivity. It is versatile for the preparation of chiral drugs and a large number of other APIs. SMB is mainly used for binary separations such as enantiomeric purifications, and it can also be used to achieve chemical purifications.

    • The Latest Research Progress of Polypeptide Antibiotics

      Polypeptide antibiotics are produced in vivo by inducing small molecule polypeptides with biological activity, which are made of 20 to 60 amino acid residues. Currently known polypeptide antibiotics are various, close to 1,200 kinds. Such antibiotics have been found to own a broad spectrum of bactericidal activity.

        • Metagenomics Class:Metagenomics And Related Research

          The concept of metagenome was proposed by Handelsman in 1998. It is the sum of DNA in a specific circumstance. Metagenomics is the research about the genome of micropopulation in the circumstance. It studies the microbial diversity, microbial population, evolutionary relationship, and its relationship with circumstance by structure functional gene screening and sequencing analysis. This can improve the use of microbial resources and become a gene bank of medical research and biotechnology research.http://www.cd-genomics.com/blog/index.php/metagenomics-classmetagenomics-and-related-research/

            stage and transporting process should be strictly controlled in terms of safety.
            But first of all, this idea should accepted by related plant from earth ground, or it will be meaningless.

                • Monobody/Adnectin/FN3 Scaffold Library Construction

                  FN3 constitutes a small, monomeric natural β-sandwich protein with resemblance to a trimmed Ig VH domain. It consists of 94 amino acids and possesses seven β-strands, with three loops connecting the strands in a pairwise fashion at one end of the β-sheet (Figure). Notably, FN3 is one of the rare members of the Ig superfamily devoid of disulphide bonds. In contrast to antibodies, the fold does not rely on disulfide bonds, yet still displays high thermodynamic stability. Since disulfide bonds do not form in reducing intracellular environments, FN3 can be a good choice in such circumstances, yet its application is…

                    Anti-aging has long been a research and study subject, but few breakthrough has been made since no original reason was found for this normal body change with age increasing. Recently scientists from TSRI may find the underlying reason for aging diseases.

                                    I think in biology, there are many important aspects. However I think the environment analysis (http://www.creative-proteomics.com/Application/Environment-Analysis-Service.htm) in biology should also be taught in class. therefore we can do more to protect our environment.
