What is a

Brainstorming Challenge

Brainstorming challenges are group creativity techniques with an end goal of finding a solution for a specific problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed by its group members. Instructors will offer a prompt to students and give them a designated time period to generate ideas.

Brainstorming challenges refer to a method of lateral thinking combined with an informal approach to problem solving. Conducting this exercise in a group setting allows individuals to think more creatively by “jolting” them out of their normal ways of thinking.
