What is the biggest problem you want to solve?

I'm an undergraduate electrical engineer. I'll be doing my senior project in less than a year from now. I'd like to hear your comments on the problems you face daily and you really want to solve.

All suggestions will be taken seriously, and I'd love to work on many projects at once.

    I'm just a normal student, so what I want to solve are quite individual. Such as "how could I make the best use of my time" or "what's the best way to keep weight".But since I'm a student studying under the kind of educational system that is not quite shaped to the needs of the children, I'm also keep thinking about one question: why we all know this educational system has deficient but still haven't seen any change? Who plays the most important role in an educational system reformation? Students? Teachers? Parents? Or still politicians?

      "Who plays the most important role in an educational system reformation? Students? Teachers? Parents? Or still politicians?"

      I find your question posed to this question rather intriguing. In the end, I think it must be the parents. The child's voice is not loud enough to carry the needed messages to the politicians ear. Parents should learn the enthusiasm their child shows for school, and they should speak out to the politicians so the schools themselves can match the child's enthusiasm. If schools were more open, a little less regulated, who knows? Kids might want to stay in school, leading to them wanting their kids to have a better time in school, and a self-appreciating spiral is formed. At least that's theory.
