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.
The James Dyson Foundation provides a guide with how to conduct 44 engineering and science challenges. However, Stephen Downes highlights that although these tasks cover the ‘how to’, they overlook the facets of work.
