On October 6th, from 1:00-3:00, the Friday ALTs spent their time in the Boundaryless @ NAU lab. Weather: 69℉ By Kaitlynn Cooper and Emanuel Molina
Boundaryless is a place to help flourish your ideas, make connections outside and be aware of all your resources. A place of inspiration where ideas and brainstorming become opportunities. Where you work with what is the problem?
On October 6th, 2017 the Friday alts met to work on the “Sustainably and Locally Made” Product ideas. Here at boundaryless, we were put in an thinking friendly environment where different mediums were able to be used to express our ideas and go through the various variables involved with creating a product. We split up into our different groups and started nailing ideas to a board and writing down our research.
The different steps at boundaryless include ideation: “the formation of ideas or concepts”, feasibility: “the state or degree of being easily or conveniently done”, design phase: “a plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment, or other object before it is built or made, quality” assurance: “the degree of excellence of something”, and finding out who the customers are.
Here my group including me, Emanuel and my other two partners Addie and Claire were working with one of the workers of Boundaryless, Katheryn discussing our plan of action. What is our product? Teabags. What are our ingredients? To be determined. What is our design? A heart. What will we use for packaging? Coffee filters. What is the need? Everyone loves drinking tea. We researched how to make tea bags, prices for different materials for packaging and ideas for design.
Emanuel- What is Boundaryless’s mission?
Jacob- “To connect students from different majors to solve real-world problems in different ways, to instill innovative thinking than just creating innovations”
