An exercise in creativity that introduces the potential of Open Government & Open Data.
The Open Data Iron Chef is modeled like the Iron Chef TV show, but instead of using truffles or shiitake mushrooms, the workshop uses Open Data sets as “inspiration.”
Once an Open Data set is chosen participants form into teams and begin brainstorming a rudimentary concept for a civic application or business idea. At the end of the exercise each team presents their concept to an audience.
Below you will find the framework for the workshop as well as examples of 30-second elevator pitches from former participants.
