Clinton County is a place where kids can experience a wide range of activities and experiences. A place where students, staff and community work together towards a common goal of success in education.

Problem

Due to global warming extreme floods are increasing at an alarming rate. Victims of floods are often trapped in vehicles, homes and on rooftops with no means of getting to safety. First responders are often unable to reach everyone in need fast enough.

Solution

The boat pod uses a sensor to detect flooding waters and inflates automatically to create an emergency evacuation tool. A GPS system helps first responders locate you if needed. The boat helps gets you to safety or keep you safe until rescued.

Societal Impact
