Imagine, Create, Innovate!

Filed Under (Innovation) by on January 18, 2011

Today the students participated in a hands-on product innovation game from the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).  Here’s the assignment as posted on our Edmodo site.

  • Challenge: Split your BizMovie team into two teams.  Each small group (of 2-3) has 30 minutes to come up with a totally new creative product from the materials given. The product can be real or fantasy, but it is important that each team demonstrate creativity.
  • Each team will have 1 minute to present their creation. The presentation will be recorded and posted on our blog for international judging. The presentation MUST include:
    • 1) The name of the product
    • 2) The features and benefits of the product
    • 3) A profile of its customers (age, gender, needs, interests, etc. . . .)
  • The winning team voted on by the blogosphere, will be awarded $5 BizBucks for their team.
  • The purpose of this activity is to stimulate creativity and critical thinking.

Stay tuned readers, the product judging process will be announced soon!  Here is an Animoto slideshow from the project.
