Innovative thinking in real time experience!
Targets: Ages 14 - 18
Structure: Students organized in teams of 4-5 have to find innovative solutions to a specific challenge of world business that is presented.
Methodology: Students will have the help of volunteers who provide advice during the development of the challenge; the solution will be evaluated by a panel that will choose the winning proposal.
Duration: 5 hour program for the students and volunteers.
Overview: It is an intense experience for students, as they must find a solution to the problem within a short period of time, they are given access to tools, information and resources. Team members are randomly selected and therefore will have to adapt quickly and find the most efficient way of teamwork.
