Challenge of the Day: Pack an Altoids Tin First-Aid Kit

The first line of defense against injuries is a well stocked first-aid kit. Think about where you’ll be using your kit as you design it. Put burn ointment in a kitchen kit, and take ice packs to a rugby game. Going camping? Make sure your kit is waterproof.  Create a pocket-sized first-aid kit that you can carry around with you.  This project solves a challenge for the Medic Skill.

Campers seek the wilderness. Wherever they are, may be their home, for they’re at home in nature. But dangers abound for those who pack a home upon their back. Staying warm, dry, fed, and hydrated is the game. Preparation and bravery are of equal and utmost importance.
