You 4 page report should include the following sections with necessary pictures as evidence:

1. Introduction. A brief background, and how you as an engineer decide to stand out to make the mask.

2. Problem definition. Summarize your understanding of the key functions of different mask components, articulate requirements and constraints. Provide quantitative numbers from literature.

3. Concept design, materials and method. How do you reconcile What materials you start with, and what help you receive (YouTube video, family activity?)

4. Results, testing and usage. Did you use it for shopping? Did you donate it (them) to package and mail delivery person?
