Innovation in Singapore

Question 1
Schools can train students to be more competitive and teach them the importance of Singapore being competitive and a first world city. This way, citizens will be able to learn the basics of innovation and how it affects their country at a young age, fueling them to be better innovators in the future, leading Singapore to be a more competitive society.
Question 2
Singapore's niche will probably be in tourism or technology. With our current machines and companies catching up with technology, and making use of them to increase efficiency, Singapore will definitely be launched in the direction of Technology. In terms of tourism, I'm quite sure we're going to have more Integrated Resorts in ten years time.

B) Ideation
1. What is the problem?
The problem is heavy school bags, something most parents worry and fret about. Heavy school bags are often causes back injuries to the student/child, and also cause much stress to the parents. 
2. How big is the problem?
Very big, if this problem is not stopped, the world will be full with hunchbacked people or people with severe back problems. Chiropractor fees are also very high, and the market rate would increase, making it more expensive as well. 
3. How will it impact the society if it is not solved?
The world would be full of hunchbacked people, this lessens efficiency and causes the world to move slower if everyone's efficiency drops. Then we wouldn't be able to meet the demands of the people and the world would be in chaos. 
4. Why does the problem exist?
Because students have so many textbooks, and also the macbook is not getting lighter. The amount of textbooks just increases and sometimes they have to bring their enormous files to school as well. 
5. What is the root cause?
School. If there was no school, this would not be a problem. And how schools are persistent on using traditional textbooks which are extremely heavy.
