When an Upper School parent who's on the frontline as a healthcare worker reached out to Kurt Moellering, Upper School Division Head, about using Carroll's 3D printers to make medical masks, he knew just who to call: Colin Meltzer, Josh Mulready, and Jamie Fisher. Our Educational Technology team oversees our maker spaces including the new Arts & Innovation Center on the Middle School campus.
Josh Mulready jumped into action immediately. He received permission to set-up a temporary Fab Lab at his home using the 3D printers from the Middle School maker space. He then found mask and respirator templates, bought supplies (HEPA filters, weather stripping, and hot glue), and went to work.
He made this video to share with the Carroll community. He says it best, "Thank you to everyone who is working on the front lines. You are the bravest. Your courage is beyond words and we can't thank you enough."
Colin and Jamie hope to join in soon once they can get the 3D printers from the Lower and Upper School campuses. We'll keep you posted about the progress of this project.
