Halfbakery Build Team

Preferably unbaked until done

The Halfbakery could form an affiliation with universities around the world, creating a summer program by which a group or groups of technically-minded students could be bundled into a dormitory in a centrally-located college, and given instructions to select and build Halfbakery ideas. Marketing ideas would also be part of the summer course.

This would be a hands-on course that brings experience in design, manufacture, implementation, and marketing.

Comes with college credit, and would be overseen by halfbakery members who have both self-respect and the respect of the group.

EDIT: When was the last time two Halfbakery: Realization ideas were posted on the same day?

       Probably recently. No offence, but engineering departments have their fair share of project incentives. That is, we'd probably need our own funding. Unfortunately, I don't think our squad is large enough for this yet, but I dream of it's realization! In the vein of idealism: [+]

       I like this, because it requires no additional effort on my part, but might make me feel like someone was benefiting from the time I waste here.

       'Building' a Halfbakery idea is one thing - but what about building a halfbaked invention? You know, the ones that are pointless or won't work due to a funny flaw?   

       Let's see the pesky students do that!   

       P.s. I'm with [IT], figuratively speaking.

       Would make a great low-budget cable-channel tv show....

       Maybe if it were *globally* located somewhere, or in several locations... I certainly would volunteer to help out in Hawaii or someplace else that has a lot of palm trees.

       Um, who is going to pay for this? I have $.35 and some lint.

       [Ian], that's genius! You should start up one of those places, sounds like it could really work. Schooling on the internet, what will you think of next?

       [Ian] no, that would be much too practical. It was just a suggestion for shapu to expand the idea to include all the countries represented here at the halfbakery.   

       (Later) I came back to see if I had misread the idea. I thought shapu meant for a *hands on* type of program. How else would one know if students were understanding halfbakery inventions?

       Hmm...I don't think I realized how US centric I'd made this (Which is odd, considering I put in the words "united states"). Whoops.
