Student teams have a variety of resources to help them craft their challenge ideas:
 
 
Michael Clay Carey, our Kickoff speaker, has provided a set of readings on the this year's challenge: http://bit.do/OU_SIC. These readings can help you understand the problem, and provide insight on possible solutions.
 
Alden Library has created a "Resource Guide for the Innovation Challenge" http://libguides.library.ohiou.edu/innovation, that points students to industry information, market analyses and other important data.
