Scandinavia 2016: Day 10 – Farvel, Copenhagen!

In 2016 we are leading 4 high school summer trips. You can read all about our Global Innovators trips or get in touch to ask us any questions about the programs. Our 2016 Scandinavia trip “Getting Americans on the Bicycle” focuses on innovation, start-ups and community in cities around the world. During the trip, students take turns writing a daily blog post to describe their project process and exploration, follow along here. After a nice walk to the bike kitchen, the group settled in to the coworking space and continued developing their part of the deliverable project. The group said a final goodbye to the bike kitchen at half past noon as they made their way to Malmö Central Train Station to catch a train to Copenhagen. Once in Copenhagen, the group walked over to the Danish Architecture Center. Today, the center was themed to display the incorporation of recreational and playful structures in cities. The group made their way over to the metal trampolines on the other side of the river and had various levels of success in regards to testing the fun factor of the trampolines. Their tour of Copenhagen continued through the main shopping district. Afterwards, they stopped at La Glace to enjoy cakes, pastries, hot chocolate, and coffee. The group made their way to Rundetaarn, an astronomical observatory built over 300 years ago. After taking in the expansive view of Copenhagen from the top of the tower, they headed to Wagamama, an authentic Japanese restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen. After an exhausting day, they were finally able to board the train back to Malmö.

A major breakthrough in the project was the development of the name of our product and the logo. Another important development in deliverable project was the finalization of the design of the website and app layout. A new idea that formed today in the group was the idea that a business plan would be needed in order to have a document to attract customers and explain the process that followings the advertising and the release of the project to the public.

An unexpected event that occurred today was definitely getting the opportunity to eat at a Japanese restaurant on the Tivoli grounds.
