The highlight of the 2015-2016 school year was a trip to Kansas City, MO. This trip included a tour of the Hallmark Visitors Center in the Crown Center complex.
Interactive displays and fascinating exhibits gave our members glimpses into the rich history, creative spirit, and inspiring innovation of Hallmark.
Another highlight was the interactive team-building activity “Breakout KC”—a real-life escape room adventure. Our two NCC teams were locked in the room and had 60 minutes to use math skills, group communication dynamics, keen observation, and the occasional clue from the control room to crack the codes and solve the puzzle (FYI–the “easiest” escape room has about a 30% success rate).
Finally, the Midwest Entrepreneurship Conference hosted college students and young professionals at the KANEKO in downtown Omaha for a keynote speaker lineup featuring some of the top entrepreneurs in the nation. Topics ranged from social entrepreneurship and sports to social media and gaming. This event–organized by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Franchising–focused on entrepreneurs under the age of 30 who have launched businesses during or shortly after college. It was enriching as the speaker panel shared their success stories and knowledge about big ideas and business ventures.
