This item showed up in our research centre Slack channel this week. "The initiative, which is made up of 44 Challenge Cards (91 page PDF), aims to provide young people with ample stimulation as families adjust to spending more time at home because of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent shut down of schools." I also noticed Ewan McIntosh's article along the same lines. I like the Dyson projects (and did many of them myself when I was younger) but it occurs to me that today scientists and engineers wouldn't think of engaging in such projects without documenting them. Because there are four stages to these projects, if done properly: design, build, test, document. The Dyson challenges describe how to do things, but skimp on methods for sharing your results.
