Brain Storm

Individual Idea Generation

Problem Statement: How might we make organization items more accessible from a lofted bed?

New Warm-Up Game: 1–2–3 Hot Potato

A new strategically take on Hot Potato. Participants write down 1,2, or 3 on paper, without showing that number to the group. Whoever starts flips their paper and passes the potato to the counter-clockwise (or clockwise, it doesn’t matter). The number on their paper determines how many people it gets passed down. This repeats until the potato gets to a person who has already had their paper flipped. That person is then out, and the game repeats until there are two people left who rock-paper-scissors for the win.

Session Organization

George (Behind glass)- George is a CFANS student who has his own room. He lives in single dorm in Bailey like the rest of the participants. His bed is lofted.

Grace(Left)- Grace is a CLA student who lives in a double with Shay. They both have their beds lofted in a “L” shape adjacent to each other.

Purple Dan (Guy with Purple Hair)- Purple Dan is a CSE student who lives in a expanded quad room with 4 other students. He sleeps in un-lofted bed with enough space underneath to hold bins. He sleeps in the “lounge” area of the quad, but only occupies the back near the window.

Shay (Right)- Shay is a CLA student who lives in a double with Shay. Her “L” shaped bed with Grace is against the wall in a corner.

The Setting :Bailey’s lounge area. The window was used to place the ideas on the board.
