Project M was a 48 hour multidisciplinary design blitz that focused on the above statement.
In the first 24 hours we roamed Rochester and talked to 5 strangers and got 5 stories that helped us better understand the community.
Word Association mind map excercise facilitated our divergent thinking and ideations.
The 2 words we had from the brainstorm were Mojitos and Kerfuffle which was our ideation starting point.
Better Bite is a service that connects students with the local food venues and hence immerses them in Rochester's culture. Better Bite showcases different restaurants by running a monthly Stuff Your Face weekend providing free transportation for students.
"Project M is a program for creative people who are already inspired to contribute to the greater good, and are looking for a platform to collaborate and generate ideas and projects bigger than themselves."
