What we worked on?

We started by identifying all the opportunity areas we could work on. So we put up post-its and started jotting down problem we can target in our local context i.e. Melbourne. We came up with 36 scenarios that were either the bigger problem or the categories of those problems. So we decided to split up these topic based on how keen we are on research and decided to take the one that didn’t interest us to avoid partial research.

Interesting Insights

The topic were too broad to start research at a give point. We realized that we would be going around the same data.
Kanika helped us start the affinity mapping process. We started by writing down all the categories highlighted withing our sustainable goal and started throwing factors that affect or are a major role player in our goal. We worked out most of these factors and started working out our excel sheets to brief out our opportunity cards.

CERN Tech Card

We started reading about CERN technology and have started looking at applications of these technologies. Most of these revolve around three factors:
1. Accelerators
2. Detectors
3. Computing
Most of these technologies seem way to complicated to link to any topic we have tried to research. However, we are focusing on these cards as well before we meet Steve Goldfarb.

What’s next

We got in touch with our buddy team from Mannhiem. We will be having a SKYPE video call with them on Tuesday after class to discuss CERN technologies further and divide them before we get into in-depth research. This is mostly to make better use of our resources, given the limited time we have.
