Imagine the local zoo has asked for our help. Their attendance is down 20%, and they’re looking for creative ways to increase their number of visitors over the summer. This leads us to the question: How might we boost the number of visitors to the zoo? Visitors can include grandparents and grandkids, teenagers, and adults in their 20s and 30s (both with and without children).
Brainstorm at least 6 new ideas and share them with the class. There’s a lot of potential here, so push yourself toward the ridiculous. For example, every Wednesday the zoo keepers could open the monkey cage and let people swing on the bars.
