WHAT’S JACKS BIG IDEA?
Jacks Big IDEA (interdisciplinary design experience accelerator) engages students from all majors to solve high-impact, global challenges in a intensive, 48-hour challenge format.
WHO’S IT FOR?
You. Yes, you and all NAU students–undergraduates and graduates–and all majors and areas of study are invited to apply.
We live in a dynamic world, defined by unprecedented opportunities and challenges. You and your classmates, whatever your course of study, have the potential to change the world. Jacks BIG IDEA is an opportunity for you to develop a more curious, problem-solving mindset and skillset while solving real-world issues.
HOW DOES JACKS BIG IDEA WORK?
You and a small team of fellow NAU students will select and work on one of a broad range of design challenge options–think, build a more efficient airplane wing, design an app interface to reduce food waste, improve water transportation, etc. Don’t worry if you’ve never done something like this; mentors from the campus and community will be there to coach and guide you and your team through the event. Workshops during the event will help you hone your idea, practice your presentation, and more.
WHEN’S JACKS BIG IDEA?
April 18-20, 2022. You’re welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to express interest in participating.
AND WHERE WILL IT BE?
