"Debate projects may result in a formal debate, or a series of presentations arguing for a specific position on an issue, debate orientated projects build the skills necessary for a lifetime of thoughtful engagement in civic, political, social, and community life. Making a compelling case backed by strong evidence – for a change in policy, a legal decision, a new regulation or law, a business plan or investment, a contribution to a philanthropic cause, a decision to vote for a candidate or to take one course of action over another, and so on – is the lifeblood of civic and community life, the heart of governing and lawmaking at all levels, the core of making good business decisions, and the collaborative give-and-take process by which societies evolve to meet new demands."

"Design projects start with a problem. How can we make airplane travel safer? How can we store more information in a smaller space? How can we use the sun's energy to heat and power our homes? Problems demand solutions, and the motivation to create solutions to problems leads to researching and comparing how others have solved similar problems; designing, building, testing and refining possible solutions; and sometimes coming up with innovative solutions."

Questions naturally fuel the desire to find answers – through research, asking experts, doing experiments to test possible answers, and by comparing answers with others researching the same questions."
