Brainstorming is a method for generating ideas to solve a design problem. Brainstorming is a technique for triggering creativity. It usually involves a group, under the direction of a facilitator. It’s about simulating the brain in order to come up with original ideas. Basically, there are four rules of doing it properly:
1. No judgments. This is the first rule of creativity in general, really. Don’t discard anything when you’re brainstorming.
2. Think freely. No matter how crazy it is; while brainstorming, ideas are neither silly nor impossible. Allow yourself to imagine as much as you want.
3. Big numbers. The more ideas, the better. It obviously depends on the situation, but try to produce at least 20 solutions and then you’ll see how much it helps.
4. Many heads are better than one. When you’re doing it in a group, accept other people’s ideas. You all work on each other’s contributions and then these will grow. Robotics Club has been organizing the brainstorming in every semester from the establishment of the club.
