** D&I Wednesday: Generating Creative Ideas

When: 11/5 from 12-1:20pm Where: JMHH G55

Have you ever been afraid of sharing your ideas because you’re worried they’ll get shut down? Come to our next Design Wednesday for our Ideation lesson where you’ll learn how to run an effective brainstorming session! We'll be using the user research from a real organization (soon to be announced) to brainstorm new product ideas to potentially move forward with after the session!

The skills you build in the workshop can be used to help drive your ideation sessions for that startup you're building, your upcoming team paper topic, or what your team is going to work on for an upcoming business plan challenge. This will be the third workshop in the Design Wednesday's design thinking workshop series, aimed to help you learn tools and strategies to enable innovation within your teams and projects.

** ProductHack

When: Saturday, November 15

Wharton's Technology Club and Design & Innovation Club are proud to introduce ProductHack, a new concept in hackathons! ProductHack is our answer to the multitude of coding-heavy competitions out there that ignore the rest of the product development process. It's a day-long tech hackathon where teams of students from Wharton, Penn Engineering, and SAS will compete to design, mock up, and pitch the best tech product to a panel of expert judges for cash prizes! No coding necessary, but MVPs and quick market testing are encouraged. More info to follow, including team sign-ups, prizes, and a design thinking/product development workshop to prepare competitors for this exciting event. For now, mark your calendars for Saturday, 11/15 and help choose the tech product categories that will be featured here (http://whartondesignclub.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=d073e07989ca2b0053218c9de&id=f3ac2deaf4&e=4b88744fb2) !
