MVP Shark Tank Project: Home


You have been tasked to take a common object that is most often just thrown away and either reinvent the object completely or create a better version of it that doesn't already exist.  You will eventually be working in groups and the final phase will be to develop a business plan and present your campaign to a "shark panel."  Creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and research are all important elements of innovation so don't be afraid to think outside the box while brainstorming ideas!  You will be using APA format for this project.
