The Ideation Camp is initiated by a kick-off event, where we give a short introduction to the camp and what is expected from the students. As a part of the camps Kick-off, we will form project-teams using 3 different type-profiles, along with a team building exercise.
Through the user stage, the students will have to go into the field in order to research the problem area chosen for the camp, and observe the users involved in this situation. The purpose is to get a good understanding of the actual problem, and the surroundings in which this arises, before working on an actual solution. Focus throughout this stage is, on collecting information and refarin from creating solutions.
The purpose of the technology stage is, to collect information about a wide range of technologies which can be interesting i connection to the camps problem area, in order to get to know the full potential of these technologies when developing solutions. As in the user stage, focus is on collecting information to get the best prerequisites for developing solutions.
Through the ideation stage, we open up for the creative thinking. The purpose of this stage is to develop a proposal for a solution to the camps problem area, based on the information gathered through the user and technology stages. Focus is on creativity, ideation, innovation and concept development.
When the students have created their proposals for a solution, they have to design a prototype and a presentation through the create stage, which can effectively communicate their proposal. Throughout this stage, focus is on utilizing effective communication techniques and creating an exciting presentation of the proposal.
The camp is completed through a pitch stage, where the students will present their proposal to a jury, which is selected based on the problem area of the camp. After watching the presentation, the jury will select the team with the most promising proposal as the winner of the camp. Furthermore, a prize is given to the teams with the best presentation and team spirit.
