Results of 3-Ideas Presentation

The idea/opportunity area for each team is listed below. These sub-themes were formed by ~18 instructors and mentors based upon your posters.

Your opportunity area is defined to reflect a sub-theme that represents promising ideas proposed by your team. A specific solution or product was not chosen as it is too risky to commit to a specific idea embodiment until our understanding is deeper. Your assigned idea area should focus your effort more narrowly than the broad theme, but still leave flexibility to explore several avenues of interest. As you learn more your ideas will evolve.

Examples of promising ideas that fit your sub-theme are provided but you should not be constrained only to ideas you have proposed thus far. You can come up with new ideas. It is quite unlikely that any one idea as sketched on your posters will survive without significant evolution.

The next step is a more focused and detailed exploration within your idea area (see the sketch model review). You will certainly want to consider new ideas, or even ideas proposed by other teams (that no longer fit their theme, but do fit your direction). A critical step in generating more refined ideas will be making a strong connection with potential users/clients and clearly articulating specific needs to be addressed.
