MindStorm: The Problem-Solving Challenge

MindStorm is the CLBR problem solving challenge. Each year, we invite employers to campus to pose a challenge they face in their business/organizations. We recruit students with interest in the company to be on a small (up to 5) team of students who will work with the representative on crafting and then presenting the solution. 

MindStorm is a terrific way for employers to meet Reedies and for Reedies to get a deeper look at orgs in which you might be interested. 

Directions for Registering:

We are excited for the following organizations to join us at Mindstorm this year:

Saturday Academy: Saturday Academy, an education nonprofit in Portland Oregon, has educated over 190,000 children since 1983. We serve over 5,000 2nd-12th grade students annually through afterschool, weekend and summer classes, and high school internships in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). We engage young people in-depth learning and career exploration by connecting them to community experts as educators and mentors. We believe that responding to children’s curiosity will motivate life-long learning.

North Star Civic Foundation: Based in Oregon, we support and invest in bold inquiry and partnerships that break through a decades-long stalemate around the biggest threats to our way of life and legacy. We bring a spirit of discovery, disruption, and collaboration to accelerate broad-scale change in the areas of wealth inequality, climate change, and open democracy.

Energy Trust: Energy Trust information, cash incentives and contractor connections help a range of customers use less energy, generate renewable power and protect the environment. We are a mission-based organization collaborating with utilities, nonprofits and government agencies to deliver significant clean energy benefits for Oregon.

Multnomah County: Services for seniors and disabled people, animal services, assessment and taxation, bridges, community justice, courts, elections, health, jails, libraries, marriage licenses and passports, school and community partnerships.
