In April/May we set up an emergency response program to print and distribute masks to frontline workers. In all about 1000 masks were produced and distributed across 10+ hospitals in a span of eight weeks.
MightyMask Project is a grassroots project started in Atlanta to manufacture 3D-printed face masks to distribute to hospitals across the U.S. facing personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages amidst the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Started by Vajraang Kamat, a senior at Georgia Tech, this project has gained momentum in just two weeks since it has started. Once the masks come off the printer, a team of ten to fifteen volunteers spread across Atlanta work non stop to cut filters to size, assemble masks, and bag them, to be shipped to hospitals in NY and GA.
