See attached word documents for developing your idea for project #2.  If you feel that you can make your idea into a business sure to complete the Business Model Canvas document as Brilliant Labs may support any required materials.  Also, use the SuperPowerChallenge notes on each section of this model for filling your own plan.  Otherwise, complete a project proposal much like you did for project #1.  Be sure to include relevant links, pictures, designs, materials, etc... to support your proposal.  Make sure to save the word document including the name(s) and project title.

NOTE:  Max this time is two per group or done individually.  I will announce due date on these documents next week.
