Nido de Aguilas Maker Lab's Partners with Donors and Creates 800 Face Shields to Support Communities in Need

Nido has three MakerLabs on campus, one for the the Elementary School, one for the Middle School and one for High School. In these spaces students are taught the use of digital tools and manufacturing techniques and foster their creativity and problem-solving skills. These labs have 3D printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, CNC routers and other tools that allow our faculty, staff, and students to make (almost) anything.

When the pandemic arrived in Chile, alongside the growing health and social crisis, the country came to a standstill. "This came along with a major disruption in the world's supply chain, which made our team realize that there was a lack of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), putting healthcare professionals and ordinary people in a higher danger of getting infected by Sars-Cov-2. As companies are struggling to keep going, as well as major travel restrictions, people around the globe are looking to satisfy the demand of PPE in other ways, and Nido was eager to join this fight and help", explains Nils Reichhard, Nido's Design and Technology Specialist who has spearheaded this initiative.

Nido, together with SOSMakers and anonymous donors, was able to create and assemble 800 Faceshields based on the model of FabLab Universidad de Chile. 100 Face shields were already donated to Fundacion Pequeño Cottolengo and the rest will be distributed to other NGOs (non-governmental organizations) soon. Nido will continue to support to its best ability organizations and communities in need during these challenging times.
