On average, every American generates 4.4 pounds of trash daily. When about 41,500 people visit AT&T stadium for a game, some of their daily trash will end up in the stadium. Your challenge is to build a prototype device or system that will help to reduce trash in stadiums.
- Participants will be able to identify the best characteristics of each design that can be combined into a new better solution.
- Participants will be able to specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions.
During the empathy and define stages of this challenge, participants will need to analyze the challenge of how to reduce trash. They will specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for the needs and wants of both attendees and stadium staff (HS-ETS1-1). As participants work through the ideate, prototype, and test phases of this challenge, they will have the opportunity to analyze data from tests to determine similarities and difference among their design solutions. They will identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success (MS-ETS1-3).
