Design thinking starts with a problem. The goal of a maker project is to design and create a solution to an everyday problem, struggle, or frustration, such as a tool that helps safely remove debris from gutters. Identifying problems is a skill, one that takes practice and time to develop. Use this guide to help you recognize problems that could be solved by “making”.
