Registration Is Open for ‘Prototype Your Innovation’ Workshop at Michigan Tech

How do you communicate an innovative idea with stakeholders? The more you can demonstrate how your innovation works, the better your understanding of the solution and the more informative feedback will be.

Join Husky Innovate for an interactive workshop to learn how to prototype your innovation and test it for customer feedback. Prototyping can range from simple to complex. This workshop focuses on building a mockup of your idea, so that you may present it and gather feedback. This feedback will inform your next design iteration and help you to tailor your solution to your end-users’ needs. 

The workshop is Oct. 26 from 4-6 p.m. in the Alley Makerspace. Register to participate by next Monday (Oct. 24).
