IdeaLab: Design Thinking Workshop
Creating New Solutions using Design Thinking
IdeaLab focuses primarily on accessibility and medical technologies by creating products and service concepts for clients such as Al Sigl and Rochester Regional Health (RRH). Students work in multi-disciplinary teams with coaches and industry experts over a weekend to define problem sets and develop innovative solutions for real-world problems.
Students will spend two days designing innovative solutions for specific problems identified by the participating organizations. Each team works under the guidance of an RIT faculty member and a sponsoring administrator. At the end of the event, the teams present their innovative approaches to the project to their sponsor. Successful projects may then be expanded into ongoing student research projects that develop product and service prototypes, and potentially new businesses.
