Putting a Focus on Student Innovation

Students focused on ideation, rapid prototyping, selling the concept and refining it based on “investor” feedback, and the teams came up with some impressive ideas along the way.

We posted each product concept on Quirky.com, an online innovation marketplace that helps take great ideas from concept to reality. Their ideas are posted under Action Learning and are open for the public to vote and comment on.
