BACKGROUND

in progress...Nemendur mínir kynntu lokaprófin sín í haust sem snerust um áskorunina um að krakkar á Íslandi væru ekki nógu mikið frá skjánum sínum sem skapaði fleiri áskoranir fyrir foreldra og opinbera þjónustu og einnig heilsu þeirra. Lausnirnar sem nemendurnar komu með voru alveg ótrúlegar.
