What do you get when you mix an all-volunteer run makerspace, a community of people that build 3D printers, and a global crisis unlike anything our generation has ever experienced?
A grassroots fight to save the world, one medical professional at a time.
The Nova Labs community has partnered with the LaserThing.com and Makersmiths to manufacture thousands of reusable face shields and masks for medical professionals on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19. Fueled by the volunteer spirit that defines the Nova Labs makerspace, and the passion for problem solving that runs through the veins of makers, we rose to the PPE challenge and started prototyping solutions. We have donated over 1,000 face shields to COVID-19 testing facilities, hospitals and clinics around the DMV and beyond!
