On October 16, 2017 the Monday ALTS group met up in the Boundaryless lab to brainstorm new ides.
Weather: 71 degrees Fahrenheit
4:00 to 6:00pm
By: Hannah Humphrey and Kylie Berger
We have been introduced to Boundaryless @ NAU which, is a safe place for creative thinking and producing. For our final we have to come up with a “Sustainably & Locally Made” product. My group which includes Kylie Berger, Robert Gray, and Ryan Sanchez came up with the idea of Planting Kits. Boundaryless helps us figure out our product development and how we can sell it and resources we can use to make our product.
In this picture, Kim, is telling us what he expects of us in today’s ALTS and how we can use the employees at Boundaryless to find out more information on our product. Once Kim is finished we all started getting busy with what we needed to do. Everyone grabbed their whiteboards, markers, paper and laptops to help them plan out this product. Ryan Sanchez and Robert Gray looking up the best way to do a sales pitch and how to execute it. All the groups by this time are together and working on their product. Some groups are ahead of others while other groups are still deciding on a good local and sustainable product they could make. As I was working with my group I heard other groups talking about days they could all meet up to go out and look for locally made products they could use. Other groups were focusing more on their sales pitch and how they were going to present it to the class. Overall this ALTS day allowed us to meet as a group and start getting a head start on our projects. Even though the ALTS time is cut an hour early since the lab is only open to 5pm we still got a lot of the stuff done that needed to be.
