A Brainstorm hits EDD!

Yesterday in class we did an exercise trying to brainstorm the many uses of a paper clip.  First we brainstormed on our own, then in groups, and finally as the whole class.  Each time the sample size grew, the possibilities increased.  In order to come up with any solution to a problem, brainstorming is an extremely important step.  It helps to expand ideas to resolve the problem at hand.  With this being said, a homework assignment for each group member is to generate a list of possible solutions to our problem.  Being in the wheelchair group, we need to generate lists of other ways we can improve upon the wheelchair or maybe even brainstorm a complete new one.  The options are endless.  In future classes I hope some of these ideas can expand the existing solution we want to pursue.
