Will you be a mentor for my students on a really cool project?
This year for the UTC Professional Practices in Graphic Design course (this is the course that the CreateAthon onCampus project was a part of last year) we're embarking on a new endeavor and I hope that you'll participate. We're participating in 48 Hour Launch: The City Love Edition.
What is 48 Hour Launch? You can read more here: http://colab.is/what-we-do/projects/48hour-launch/ But, the quick pitch is this: several teams compete to launch a project within a weekend. This year 48HL is going with a theme: City Love. Ten teams will compete to create, design, build, and present an app that will enhance the Chattanooga visitor experience.
UTC Design Students are required to attend, and every school is invited. The students will work with teams to provide the design for each project. We're missing one important piece, however—the students will need advice, direction, encouragement, and critiques. Basically, we need you:)
WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU TO GIVE YOUR WHOLE WEEKEND. We're simply asking you to show up at pre-scheduled times throughout the weekend to check in with the students' work. The schedule is as follows:
3/30/12 at 6:00 pm EST at Co.Lab: Help students prepare a creative brief.
3/31/12 at 12:00 pm EST at Co.Lab: Check in on students' progress.
4/1/12 at 12:00 pm EST at Co.Lab: Check in and direct students on how to build a final presentation.
Just so you know, your participation as a mentor earns you free entry into the event. Normally, you'd have to pay $40 to attend. If you plan on mentoring please use my contact form to let me know.
Please pass this information to other professionals who could potentially mentor.
Let's get ready to launch!
