The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light how important the simple act of hand-washing is in disease prevention.  In this North Star Experience, we will explore several models of hands free hand-washing stations designed by partners of Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB). We will assess our campus needs and then choose a design appropriate to the needs of our campus and install several hand-washing stations around our outdoor campus.  After the installation we will monitor and evaluate our design.  In this way we will be following the EWB project implementation process of Assessment, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation.  In this sense this project will provide a short "burst" model to help us plan future CWRU EWB projects. 

Students not living in Cleveland, will have the opportunity to build a hand-washing station in their home community.

**NOTE: membership in CWRU EWB is NOT required to participate in this experience.
