This lovely challenge was a design challenge as follows :


  • Provide a draft of your protective measure explaining how you will use the Arduino hardware to either
    • keep your hands clean or
    • not touch your face or
    • maintain the distance from other people.
  • You don’t have to have Arduino hardware to take part – just review the useful links below and let us know what you would do if you did have it!


  • Everyone can help avoid the spread of COVID-19 if
    • we wash or disinfect our hands frequently
    • don’t touch our face
    • maintain at least 2 metres (6 feet) distance between yourself and other people.
  • Join us to combat COVID-19 by building and programming your Arduino based protective measure.
