Elizabeth commented on Breaking the Learning Comfort Zone

From your attached Word doc: 'People in the developing world don’t have access to the capital to create flawless production. They make do with what they have because they don’t have other options. From a very young age they learn to tinker and try, not because they want to, but out of necessity.'

Access to resources and/or providing limits on engineering assignments is a practice discussed in 'Invent to Learn' (http://www.inventtolearn.com/) by Sylvia Libow Martinez & Gary Stager. I'll be thinking about how this might be incorporated into the idea phase.
