What is your first memory of design thinking?
It goes back to a delicious and oh so healthy fast food meal. I was playing with the free toy that came in my Happy Meal and suddenly wondered what made it move and work. So I smashed it open to see what was inside. I was amazed at the spring mechanism and small plastic gears, and wondered how they could just give that away for free. Then I threw the scraps to the ground and got back to my French fries!
