Innovation. New ideas. What can you do with an everyday item?
People drive the future, from economics to solutions to world-wide problems. For its part in Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Koshland Science Museum presents a mini-challenge to participants in this unique public program.

As part of the program, participants will get to test their own hands and minds with a mini-challenge. Come with your own team, or be ready to be paired with a few strangers and make some new friends. We will provide an item, a task, and give you 30 minutes to plan and create. Afterwards, teams can share their results. The evening will be capped by a presentation from the Koshland/Singapore Team.

The evening will start with a few words from Robert Litan, Vice President of Research and Development at the Kaufmann Foundation.
