Get ready for some “kitchen chemistry!” In this workshop, you will be challenged to identify a problem or opportunity for innovation and invent a product that will get your customers excited. You will begin by using tools to help you generate “meaningfully unique” ideas. Then, after creating a dozen or so ideas, you will choose your favorite idea and spend the rest of time making it a reality. Once you have created your product you will make a commercial that gets your customers excited to try and buy.
Cost: $15 per person (includes lunch)
