|The Theme You Picked: Fighting Germs|
The Fighting Germs theme is in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak which is the most pressing concern in all our lives right now. We're calling on all community members to build projects that make it easy to be germ free, build projects that protect the most vulnerable, and to build projects that help you (and others) cope with current crisis. You can also build projects that help keep you protected when you have to be out for essentials such as groceries or trips to the pharmacy.
Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the recent worldwide pandemic, that has left many of us working from home, social distancing, and self-isolating; we have setup a special competition to help confront these troubling times. Engineers are problem solvers and we've got a community full of them. The name of the theme is Fighting Germs and the idea comes from a conversation started by 14rhb in his post. This challenge is to encourage you to build something that helps fight or prevent the spread of germs. The idea being it would be affordable in terms of the component availability/resources so that others with similar resources could replicate them to help a few friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Could be something that helps in the medium term while people, especially older folk, are in isolation. And finally looking much further ahead, helps prevent the spread of germs. You could for instance do something that helps elders that are currently in isolation such as providing remote care and diagnosis. The Grand Prize includes a Thermal Imaging Camera, a $200 Shopping Cart, and a $200 Donation to a Covid-19 related charity of your choice. 3 First Place Winners receive a Germicidal Lamp, a $100 Shopping Cart, and a $100 Donation to a Covid-19 charity of your choice.
