CMU team led by Prof. Taylor manufactures face shields for the community

CMU has written two articles about our effort to utilize Tech Spark, IDeATE, and dFAB to manufacture 15,000 face shields for the community: "CMU Produces Face Shields" and "Behind the Shield"

Prof. Taylor was interviewed about this effort by Michelle Wright from WTAE Channel 4 local news. The Facebook Live interview is available at this link: here.

The effort was also highlighted on the NSF-sponsored kids blog BrainsOn! from American Public Media. In the episode "Coronavirus: How to be a helper from home," Prof. Taylor talks about how face shields can help make other PPE like face masks last longer.

Special thanks to Emma Benjaminson and Diana Haidar (and the TechSpark team) for their dedicated efforts making this possible! And many thanks to our partner, Global Links!
