This resource produced by Siemens introduces the technology used to protect public health in smart buildings. A series of activities allows students to model the spread of bacteria and viruses using glitter on hands and produce a COVID-19 guidance poster how to protect against the spread of this or other viruses. Smart buildings that use technology to protect the people using them are outlined and students use this data to design a floor plan of their school that incorporates security access, thermal scanning, ionisation and UV sterilisation systems, humidity sensors and contact tracing. Separate teacher notes are provided.
