Creo 1, Day 1

Today was all about team-building and brainstorming fro Creo 1. We kicked the day off with a workshop on multidisciplinary collaboration, which turned out to be a lot more fun than it sounded! We had a great time working together to stack solo cups without touching them, and building a ridiculous structure to hold a softball out of a paper plate, a rubber band, and several other seemingly random items.

In the afternoon, we spent time as a group, using some of the techniques we’d learned throughout the day to brainstorm ideas for the challenge. We used the “Five why’s” from the presentation by J&J and the fantastic skills/weaknesses postcard technique from the team-building workshop.

We had a really great time coming up with lots of possibilities, but ultimately we decided that we couldn’t move forward without doing more research, so we decided to adjourn for the evening to research independently and meet again in the morning. We’re confident that we will be able to come up with something great!
