1. We were able to prototype two concepts and looking to prototype a third next wee. We re-evaluated our users and decided to stick with assistive kitchenware with the elderly and those with arthritis as our users. We decided this based off of the feedback we received at the expo and through research.
2. We have come in contact with the Symphony of Evanston and will be meeting with their therapists and hopefully residents to gain feedback on our prototypes and to gain more insights.
3. Our team goal is to go to Norris on Friday and ask individuals to try out our prototypes and get feedback. Additionally, we are hoping to set up user interviews this week through Symphony of Evanston.
4. Our major obstacles are again finding users, but focusing on the elderly has helped us find more accessible users.

The four new questions:
1. What is our team's progress on the last goal, and what did we learn about our user(s) since then?
2. What else has our team accomplished that we are proud of since last meeting?
3. What is our team's goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-related) by next meeting?
4. What are the major obstacles stopping us from achieving this goal, and how will we resolve them?

1. What did we learn about our users today? Throughout an empathy exercise, we found that pouring is one of the most difficult motions. Additionally, we found gripping can be painful and difficult especially with more usage. We are focusing on pots.
2. Having already planned out what we are mocking up next week, we will just be preparing for prototyping and bringing in pots.
3. Finding users and prototyping without user validation.
4. Execution approach and tradeoffs between prototyping and user validation. Where should our time be spent.

1. Not much lol, solo research but more specific ideas of difficulties in the kitchen and reached out to a few specialists/users
2. By Tuesday, contact at least one user. Potentially start with interviews. Brainstorm solo if you can.
3. Lack of productivity and Paul2 says too good of social skills. We can't find users.
