Penn Design Challenge Update

We kept the momentum strong with a fantastic workshop from the Fahrenheit team this past Friday, diving into frameworks for students to effectively analyze the great research they have been developing. Slides from the presentation are below and photos to come!

One of the biggest insights: don't fall for the trap, the belief that you can fast track from research to great solutions. In fact, observations are just the first step in developing insights as a foundation for transformative ideas.
