Maker Challenge

Disaster relief workers confront unique challenges during COVID-19 as they respond to local and national crises, including the coronavirus pandemic and natural disasters. Through the COVID-19 Maker Challenge, we want to learn more about these challenges and select several for our maker teams to address. If you or someone you know faces specific COVID-related challenges when responding to disasters, we invite you to submit your challenges below. If we adopt your challenge for the program, we will invite you to join a team of subject matter experts to guide them in understanding the problem in-depth and designing a solution. What aspects of your operations need attention to enhance your COVID-19 disaster response efforts? If you are looking to sign up as a maker to work on a specific challenge submission, please Subscribe to the post and Comment within the submission you'd like to tackle!
