- Problem solvers – There’s a problem. It sucks. Don’t just say, “Oh, well.” Say, “How can I fix it?”
- Identify THREE circumstances/problems/issues that you feel need to have a solution or be improved upon. For example, the vending machine always seems to rejects your coins.
- Research how it currently works or is the way it is. For example, vending machines determine the value of the coin by the size and shape. (2 pages minimum double-spaced).
- Come up “with a better way”. How would you improve the system? Your proposed solution must be grounded in reality. (1 page minimum double-spaced). For example, people and animals can identify things by sound, if a vending machine could do that, it might not reject the coins as often.
