Think about the problem you have identified as you get ready for the next step in Design Thinking in Quest 3, Ideation, where you will generate lots of ideas.

Complete the Quest 2 slides in your Design Thinking Workbook with your project team.

If you are having trouble thinking of an issue to investigate with the design thinking process check out the STEM Global Impact idea generator. 

Note their disclaimer and the bold words to think about: "This generator is a free tool to quickly find STEM global impact prompts to practice with. This generator uses a focused set of data and limited features from our STEM Generator for an optimized experience."

 When your team has completed the Quest 2 slides, check with your teacher about sharing and/or submitting them for review of your progress.
