How does one get inspiration to start personal projects?
Any advice on starting passion projects and getting inspiration for projects, specifically STEM projects? I want to major in computer science and I want to start a project regarding science and technology, but I am having a hard time getting ideas.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
If computer science is something you're interested in, I think you should consider starting to code an app or a website... for teaching science, for example! (that's a way to relate the two) or you could make animated videos to explain complex topics in science and technology! Or found a non-profit to introduce technology in some schools that haven't access to it. These are just examples to help...
To get inspiration, I think you should sit down in a room with a pen and a blank sheet of paper and just write down the things you love and the things you know how to do, and then try to find how you could link both.
For me, as I like computer science and am very concerned about ecology, I'm coding an app for the ecology club of my school.
Hope this helped!
