YOUR ASSIGNMENT

“] Once you fall in love with an issue, use one of the tools from the START HERE page to create a project to help solve your problem.  Here are some questions your project should answer:

  • What does a “day in the life” of a person with this problem look like?

  • Are there good guys or villains in this problem?  If so, who?

  • Who does this problem affect the most? Why?

  • How big is the problem (For example, 35% of Americans are obese or over 8000 people died from firearms in the U.S. in 2010)

  • Why are the solutions already out there not good enough?
