Working into the early hours of Thursday — 3 a.m. for most — 24-Hour Think Challenge groups settled on "How Might We?" (HMW) statements, or, the problem thinkers chose to solve to reimagining their learning.
How Might We? statements ranged from "How might we support student passion in a system controlled by ill-equipped adults," to "How might we utilize failure to inspire a deeper learning?" Groups will prototype the HMW statements — literally create the solution in the form of a model, story board, video, website, etc. — before they are tested in front of local business persons and stakeholders.
Many of the prototypes will be intensely critiqued before settling on the final version of their solution.
"It's the process of failing forward," said Think Challenge crew member Hayden Cooper. "There's always going to be failures. It's important to take from those failures and run with it."
Students will pitch their final solutions at the pitch event at 4 p.m. today at CenturyLink Arena. The event is free and open to the public.
