2.9. Starting ICED

ICED (Developed by NASA) stands for "Innovative Conceptual Engineering Design", and it basically is a 4-step way to solve problems, such as "How can I boil an egg without electricity?"
First off we have to learn the ICED-methodology ourselves. We have had very informative lectures from Dr. Charles Camarda about the subject, and how to apply it. Now we have to fully embrace the study and teach it (at the end of September) to others.

As our group is still "young", this kind of warm-up-challenge is great. Many ideas occurred on our first meeting, and we are highly motivated to take on this September Challenge of ICED, after which we'll be starting our Epic Mars Challenge of coming up with a way to grow food on Mars.
