#OneDayKC 2016 was a 12-hour workshop and competition co-directed by William Jewell College, Rockhurst University, and University of Missouri-Kansas City. College students and juniors/seniors in high school attended from across the Kansas City region, along with University Innovation Fellows from across the nation. Participants collaborated in teams to create big-picture solutions through the power of a connected city and Lean methods, “failing fast” to validate their solutions and assumptions. Participants tackled complex problems, including Sustainability & Energy, Transit & Traffic, Municipal Services, Health & Well-being, Education & Workforce Development, and Culture, Recreation, & Public Spaces. Students’ ideas were transformed into business models and prototypes and then pitched to a panel of judges. The event took place at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Conference Center from 8:00am to 5:00pm, with a public judging ceremony at Rockhurst University’s Arrupe Hall beginning at 6:30pm. Teams were mentored by faculty from the Stanford d.school, CEOs of local startups, sustainable architects, artists, service designers, and more. Speakers included Bob Bennett (Kansas City's Chief Innovation Officer), Leticia Britos Cavagnaro (Stanford d.school), Butch Rigby (KC Sustainable Development Partners), and Landon Young (William Jewell College Director of Creativity & Innovation). With recent technological and infrastructural developments in Kansas City, like Cisco’s Smart City initiative, the Streetcar, and rapidly-expanding Google Fiber, Kansas City is uniquely poised to become an even more amazing place to live and work in the next ten years. There is an incredible potential to design sustainable communities, leverage smart devices through the Internet of Everything, and create an efficient, flourishing city for 2025 and beyond — and for the second year in a row, #OneDayKC brought together the top young minds from the region to make it happen.
