How about a FedEx Day?

FedEx Day: a 24-hour hackathon in which individuals or teams work on new ideas and new projects. Participants must work on something that’s not part of their daily work and, most importantly, they have to deliver something in 24 hours (in the words of Seth Godin, “they need to ship“).

Here are some resources on FedEx Days generally and for schools specifically. Happy innovating!

  1. Hey Pal,

    Just wanted to thank you for pulling all these resources together!

    I’ve been toying with the idea of a Fed Ex day in my mind for a long while and have never taken action. These resources will help me think my way through how to really make it happen.


  2. The most important resource for a FedEx day is Design Thinking. It is the structure, organization, and content for a successful day. Design it, build it, test it. I had multiple design briefs I used in my classes for FE days and used the same process for planning a week of design days.
