IBM Design Thinking Workshop 

Let's experience a new way to think and problem solve!

Are you a computing, business or liberal arts major? All majors are welcome!

Problem Statement:

The town of Germantown, located in Columbia County NY, is nestled on the east bank of the Hudson River 100 miles north of New York City. Over 2,000 Germantown residents enjoy a quiet, family-centered life-style in the country with easy access to the river for boating, fishing and viewing spectacular sunsets behind the Catskill Mountains. Boaters and fishing fans have two access points to the Hudson River:  Cheviot Park off County Rd. 9G and Lasher Memorial Park in North Germantown.

There are several acres of undeveloped waterfront property either owned by the town or the State. The town is interested ideas for utilizing the waterfront land, which takes into consideration the potential high-speed rail that may be built along the Hudson River to link New York City and Albany.

More Information:

Workshop participants will receive certificates of completion, and have the oportunity to present their ideas to the town of Germantown!

A light lunch and snacks will be provided.

Please register by March 1, 2016!
