• Ask - What is the problem?


    To start the design process, students identify a real problem in their class, school, community, state, country, or world.   To do this, students ask:

    • What is the problem?
    • What do we already know?
    • What are the limits or controls of the task?


    Empathy is a key factor that drives the design process towards a solution that functions well for the user or audience.
