Greetings Best Community Members in the Galaxy!
The Fighting Germs competition began shortly after our US and UK and Spain offices went down in locked down. What's going on in the world has been scary for us all but launching this competition has helped with the helpless feeling of not being able to do anything when something that's been so damaging is going on. It's been a pleasure to see these projects coming through and its been inspiring to see how technology can be used to find answers to things that are still a puzzle. This does feel like the right time to wrap things up. Here in the US, parts of the country are opening up while other parts have chosen to remain close. We remain for the time being working remotely. Also, the close of the competition was moved slightly because we wanted to make sure things were closed out properly. Ideally we would have had this earlier but we just launched the next competition the other day, so things were slightly delayed.
With that being said, it's once again its time to pick the winners of the last project competition, the Fighting Germs competition. By volunteering to judge you help ensure that the winners of Fighting Germs reflect the diversity of thought and opinion that makes this the best online community for engineers in the galaxy!
- One Grand Prize Winner Wins a Thermal Imaging Camera + a $200 Shopping Cart + a $200 Donation to a Covid-19 Related Charity!
- 3 First Place Winners Win a Germicidal Lamp + a $100 Shopping Cart + a $100 Donation to a Covid-19 Related Charity!
Those of you that have volunteered to judge in the past, you know the drill. Comment below to let me know or message me directly at tariq.ahmad.
You're under no obligation to vote for the best project but we do ask that you look for complete projects and let us know your thoughts on the winners you pick.
The guidelines are loosely structured but are designed to encourage complete project submissions (with steps and video proof), and we want this program to be something that everyone in the community can participate to post smaller projects that fit within a theme (a theme the members pick in a monthly poll) .
For each project submission did the entrant do the following:
- Follow the Steps - Did they provide the steps it took to complete the project (text, video, or images) and/or schematics.
- Submit Video Proof - Did they post a video proof of their project?
- Stick to the Theme - How well did the project stick to the theme of the competition?
- Demonstrate Originality - Did they come up with a clever name for their project? Or did they introduce something new or that is not commercially available?
