In this, the Waterloo IxDA's last get-together of the 2007-2008 season,
we¹re wrapping up with an interactive, entertaining, and (gasp!) even
educational event. Working together in small groups, we¹ll tackle two design
challenges: one at a strategic level, designing the concept for a product or
business idea; and one at a tactical level, designing the form and behavior
of a concrete product.

We¹ll have some fun with this, as the design challenges will be quite unlike
anything we face in day-to-day work (they¹re remaining a secret until the
19th, so nobody gets a head-start!). At the end of each challenge, we¹ll
present our solutions to each other for a brief critique -- and in the
process will learn some new ideas about how to tackle design problems, even
the ones we *do* face day-to-day.

Everyone is welcome to participate! Please don¹t feel you need to be a
superstar designer -- or for that matter, a designer at all. With only 20
minutes for each design challenge, all you¹ll need is some imagination, a
willingness to encourage each other¹s ideas, and a desire to learn and have
