An alternative to seasonal couch potato syndrome

 Megan Vollstedt | Executive Director, Iowa AgriTech Accelerator

The Idea: With seasons of prolonged harsh weather, it’s difficult to find a variety of indoor, secure environments in which to spend time. An interactive space that sparks physical activity, creativity and exploration that is compelling to a mature demographic would add value to the community. To avoid the lethargy that accompanies our seasonal weather extremes by providing a healthier alternative to frequenting the couch at home, Des Moines should develop an indoor, interactive space for adults that incorporates art installations with obstacle courses and educational experiences that challenge our thinking and enrich our lives. >
