- Who: The College of Arts & Sciences, CoMotion + YOU
- When: 3pm Friday, January 6 - 3pm Sunday, January 8
- Why: Mentoring, skills development, prizes and intense fun!
In January 2017, A&S and CoMotion team up again to invite students to imagine how we can put innovation at the heart of the undergraduate experience. In what ways can Arts & Sciences students play a central role in the development of the Innovation District, and more generally, in inclusive innovation at the University of Washington? How can we help students realize their potential, not just to change the landscape of innovation at the University of Washington, but to change the world for the better?
Students will work in teams over 48 intensive hours, drawing on the expertise of innovation leaders from within and outside UW as mentors, panelists, and experts. In this Ideathon, we will focus on the value students bring to inclusive innovation and on the importance of 21st century story skills. By the end of the weekend, teams will deliver stories of how innovation can be a meaningful, motivating part of the UW undergraduate experience.
