I just did a Zoom support session with the lead for the Idle Reminder team from last year helping them navigate through some Arduino code. It’s great to see these projects from Pactful extending past the school year and becoming a real world project (maybe even a product.)
That’s awesome, Stephen. Are they extending their Idle Reminder work from last year or working on another project?
For others, you can read more about Idle Reminder—who won 2nd place!—on our Winners and Finalists page from last year’s challenge.
Because of the way the school year ended last year the team wasn’t able to complete a prototype. They picked up work and with the assistance of an engineer have been working to develop a functioning prototype so they can test their solution,
