Innovation Challenges, Volume 1 describes methods for teaching and promoting creativity, innovation, and the entrepreneurial mindset through novel challenges.  The challenges require the participants to go beyond planning to prototyping and testing and serve to foster critical design skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, teamwork, and communication skills in an exciting, relevant way.

Just as people are encouraged to exercise everyday to keep the body fit, these challenges are designed to keep the mind fit, creative and imaginative.
