Makers for COVID-19
Swarthmore Steps Up to Help Healthcare Workers
Makers from all walks of life have responded to the shortage of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) facing our nation's frontline healthcare workers by self-organizing, and using whatever materials and resources they have available. Swarthmore is no different, with members of our community reaching out to ask how they can help in the fight against COVID-19. Swatties have already started sewing masks in their homes using cotton fabric, sheets, t-shirts, and other household scraps. The Swarthmore Makerspace is equipped with 3D Printers and a Laser Cutter capable of producing face shields, and we are currently in the process of sourcing materials for safe production.
