The Fall 2020 IPD challenge:  Reduce Isolation, Enhance Social Engagement in Pandemic

Students were challenged to design a product-driven solution that addresses the problem of social isolation in pandemic conditions, by enabling increases in meaningful social engagement with other people. The solution might include service, technology, application, and built environment features and should be suitable for use in household living circumstances.
