Finally, choose one. Continue working with this the rest of the day and possibly use some time of your own.
  7. After finding a solution to the challenge you should make a presentation about your solution idea to demonstrate it to the other groups. The form of the output is free as long as it is in an electronic form. However, there are some ground rules to the product.

Tuesday 11.9. - Friday 14.9.

It is time to vote the best outcomes! Get together with your team, get acquainted with the other groups’ works in Padlet and vote for the solution idea you think is the best one. The groups will evaluate each other in the following manner:

    Theme group 1 preview and vote solutions from the theme group 2.
    Theme group 2 preview and vote solutions from the theme group 3.
    Theme group 3 preview and vote solutions from the theme group 1.

You cannot vote for a product inside your own theme but will get acquainted with another theme instead. This way you will get familiarized with themes outside your own. You cannot vote for your own product. There are a lot of products, and of course you can share the workload inside the group.
