Problem

I did an innovation project.

The problem I was trying to solve was how to stop snow from getting into my shoes.

Method

step 1 . Measure out the length and width 

Of the material   

step 2 . Cut out the measured material

step 3 . Measure out the velcro

step 4 . Cut out the measured velcro

step 5 . Sew the velcro onto the material

step 6 . Test and make observations

step 7 . To improve, redo this process with 

observations in mind 

 

Analysis

I think I did a good job trying to solve the problem, and at the end the result was an effective prototype. The innovation stops snow from getting into my shoes. 

Conclusion

The final prototype only let through 0.5 ml of snow compared to 0.3 ml of snow without the final prototype. This means the prototype is six times more effective than not wearing the prototype.
