How I Use It
We use the site as a starting point for creative problem solving in Design Studies. Without giving students a specific solution we challenge them to design and build an object with a set of limited resources. After design, building and testing we review the site's solution to see how it compares to student ideas.
My Take
Not every project is valuable but many are very useful to emphasize the variety of solutions possible to a particular problem.
