TTG Brings Ideation Workshop to SUNY Oswego

The Tech Garden’s Ideation Workshop traveled north to SUNY Oswego’s first Penfield Library Grand Challenges Make-athon. The workshop took place before the make-athon for students to learn how ideas are made, assessed and realized into sustainable businesses. It also explored and demonstrated topics including brainstorming, problem identification, self-awareness, idea selection, validation and concept development.

The make-athon encouraged students to develop teams and find creative solutions to the college’s Grand Challenge of Fresh Water for All. The make-athon was modeled after hack-athons where participants work together for a limited time period to brainstorm and create a project.

Looking ahead, The Tech Garden plans to customize the Ideation Workshop for more colleges and universities around the region. Learn more at

Caitlin Moriarty, learning experience design manager at The Tech Garden, leads students through the steps of creating and cultivating a great idea.
