Virtual Event

Apply creative techniques and win prizes! In this virtual workshop (IAP, not for credit) open to MIT undergraduate students of all majors, you will practice and apply three creative techniques for solving open-ended challenges in any field. All participants will tackle the same challenge and generate creative ideas for solving it.

Following the ideation activity, participants will vote anonymously on the best idea generated by each technique. Participants with the top scoring idea for each technique will each receive $60 in TechCash.

The workshop will be conducted by two experts on thinking skills in science and engineering education: Dr. Rea Lavi, Lecturer and Curriculum Designer for the NEET undergraduate program at MIT School of Engineering, and Dr. Deniz Marti, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Learning Incubator at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
