Sketchnote activity

To get at the heart of experimentation. Let's do it. At any point today...


  1. Take your hexagon...
  2. Think of one experiment or project you want to commit to trying this year.
  3. Use sketchnote techniques we learned to visually represent your idea for an experiment.
  4. Take a selfie with your hexagon goal and post it to Twitter with the hashtag #Aggietech15
  5. Place the hexagon near other related experiments on the poster paper--you can move them around at any point as the thinking map develops
