ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and ‘snap’, the job’s a game.” Mary Poppins

Students were presented with the challenge to incorporate a fun idea into any routine, everyday job. They were given 45 minutes and a variety of props and prototypes to choose from. At the end of the session, they had to pitch their ideas within two minutes in front of a judge.
