** D&I Wednesday: Generating Creative Ideas
When: 11/5 from 12-1:20pm Where: JMHH G55
Want to brainstorm new product ideas at the intersection of technology, fitness and design, and also learn techniques on how to run your own brainstorming sessions?
Wharton's Design & Innovation Club is partnering with xLAB, and Penn's Integrated Product Design Master's program for its two upcoming Ideation and Prototyping workshops!
Who should attend? Anyone interested in design thinking, fitness enthusiasts, technologists, aspiring entrepreneurs, and anyone who thinks any of the above sounds like fun.
At our upcoming workshop, Generating Creative Ideas, Sarah Rottenberg, the Associate Director of Penn's Integrated Product Design Masters Program and a co-founder of the xLab, will be presenting the results of interviews conducted with potential users on home fitness needs. We'll be using this research as the basis of a fun and interactive brainstorming workshop to develop 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 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 project.
Our next workshop, "Prototyping and Testing Your Ideas" on 11/19 will be building off product ideas generated in this workshop, so we encourage you to come to both!
Lunch is provided!
