Idea Lab

Idea Lab is a weekly meet-up for Gordon College students to hack away at their ideas and make them a reality. You don't have to wait for Social Venture Challenge or the Sandbox Weekend to test your idea! This is a space for you to work on your half-baked project or venture that you just need to put to paper and test to see if it's worth pursuing.

So you have an idea, but you're not sure where to start? Join us every week for CEL's Idea Lab where we offer consulting, encouragement, and resources from your fellow Gordon peers and the CEL staff you get to the next step.

Ideas that have been worked on at Idea Lab:

  • Local service trips as an alternative option for chapel credit
  • An interactive wristband that keeps motorcyclists safe
  • Theatre advocacy program
  • Sustainable fashion
  • Aid for people who get concussions during college
  • A way for authors to share their draft manuscripts with their target audience
  • A game-based, language learning app
  • Better comedy content
