This project will focus on the issues caused by a pandemic, particularly, sanitation issues and difficulties in a public area. After a considerable amount of research, it became evident that current sanitation methods are time inefficient, not always effective and wasteful. There are numerous misconceptions on how these methods work and skepticism of the products themselves. The pandemic caused by COVID-19 is an extremely relevant issue that has affected schools, hospitals and other high traffic areas. This project will focus on K-12 grade schools that struggle with quick, easy and effective cleaning methods in between and after class. We aim to achieve a method or product that is safe, adaptable, reduces the spread of infection, eco-friendly and affordable.

The FDA approved design process will be followed for the length of this project. Our project will include working with teachers at the local Massillon middle school and doctors/nurses from local Akron hospitals. We will also be testing and verifying our solution throughout the course of this project.
