First Mini-Challenge Results

So the first mini-challenge has ended, the judges have mashed flippers together and we have a winner.

11 teams crafted an response to our questions and the answers are (in arbitrary order):

  • Design’ee’rs –
  • Innovata –
  • Kingsloths in Space –
  • The Ninjas –
  • S.M.A.C.K. –
  • Sons of Ive –
  • Team Mangalyaan –
  • The Pentagon –
  • The Whimsicals –
  • Nomadic Tom –
  • Yellow Rubber Duck –
  • Floyd Five –

It was a close race, but our winners are Team Mangalyaan!

To the teams who didn’t submit an answer for this challenge, we are looking forward to seeing you in the next mini-challenge.

Some general advice from the judges:

  • We’d love to see some more feistiness, this is a design challenge, but you can still have fun and throw out some crazy and controversial ideas.
  • A lot of the answers were discussions on the questions, but either skimmed over answering them, or looked in depth at only a single view point—rather than multiple—for a discussion…keep your minds open!
  • We suggest you all look a little into convergent and divergent thinking, is a good place to start.

Good luck with the next mini-challenge and we can’t wait to see what you all come up with next!
