What is your first memory of design thinking?
I was a big contraption builder when I was a kid. Whenever I used to make something, my mom would wave her arm back and forth like the needle on some type of gauge and say “Idiot or Genius?” (still TBD…). One time I designed a system on my porch such that when the door was opened it turned on an electric motor which spun the hose on and sprayed whoever had opened it. Proud of my design, I marked this one in the ‘Genius’ category until my mom came home to a smoking porch and thought the contrary.
