What Is a Design Challenge?

You will be challenged to come up with a way to solve the problem of climate change.  This can involve inventing a thing (such as a machine) or a developing a system (a process).

·     Invention:  a machine that makes it possible to recycle 100% of household waste and separates cans from paper and plastic.

·     Process: a weekly schedule for using the machine and transporting recyclable materials to a center where they can be turned into usable materials.
