How to approach the project
Design thinking is an approach to problem solving that fits well with the FLL project. It was originally developed at Stanford University. YouTube has number of design thinking videos. This one is simple to understand.
Last year, I was a project judge. The biggest problem I saw with the teams was the ability to explain the sources of their information. "The Internet" is not an adequate description of a source. Watch this video with your students to learn about the importance and method of citing sources properly.
