"The 24-hour Design Challenge was a great new experience for me. It encouraged me to interact with other students and professionals to come together to create solutions to several subjects and challenges. The workshop created a natural flow of ideas and allowed us to emphasise overcoming preconception on different solutions related to our subject. We all had the opportunity to learn, share our ideas, do effective networking, and enjoy a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere."
"I think the 24-hour Design Challenge gives you a great practical experience of how to Innovate and create new solutions quickly that you can bring to life and use in the future. …Which honestly is something not easily taught and what makes it interesting is the mix of college cultures and the skills sets of each person from different courses - we all had something new and creative to bring to the table."
"The 24-Hr Design Challenge was a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, work as part of a team and challenge ourselves under time pressure to create unique design solutions by means of following the Design Thinking framework. I found this event extremely beneficial to my Business Management course, allowing me to look at problems in a more creative and constructive way. I would highly recommend any student (regardless of their course type) to take this opportunity to further develop and challenge their design thinking and problem-solving skills."
