How can you help students find a problem worth solving?
Self Reflection: give students time to reflect and list their passions, frustrations and areas of expertise. Then see where there is overlap, do they encompass a particular problem?
Problem Log: have students go through a day and document as many problems as they can that they experience or see others experiencing.
United Nations Global Issues: students can go to United Nations Global Issues and explore the 22 critical global issues defined by the UN to get ideas for problems worth solving.
