Join the Open Design Sprint for Duke Wellness!

Have ideas about building a strong and healthy Duke community? * Want to work in teams to generate creative, entrepreneurial, thoughtful, impactful solutions with potential for real-world implementation at Duke? * Want to win a prize for your work?

In this 3-week experience, teams of students will work on real-world challenges that directly impact health and wellness at Duke. Guided by experts in the Open Design process, participants will understand the needs, hopes, desires of Duke students, create prototypes to meet unmet needs, evaluate, test and iterate on their prototypes, and finally share their co-created solutions in a pitch event to the Duke Community.  

The Details
When: Wednesday, March 23 – Wednesday, April 6  
How it works:
  • All teams will meet on 3/23, 3/30, and 4/6 (5:15 PM – 6:45 PM in Schiciano Auditorium) to build community, learn the design process, and share their progress.
  • Between each meeting, teams will work on focused, weekly challenges to move their projects forward.
  • The sprint will culminate in a Share Event where teams will pitch their prototypes to members of the Duke community.
