A small volunteer effort comprising members of the Univ. of Illinois School of Chemical Sciences and residents of Champaign-Urbana, IL. Narrowly focused on applying our skills and resources to creating improvised PPE in the local and nationwide PPE shortage.

NOTE: WE ARE STILL DISTRIBUTING 3D PRINTED MASKS – Email to request masks shipped to you at no charge, with preference going to healthcare providers. 

For Press/General inquiries: contact
to be directed to the relevant team member.

4/15/20 – Thanks to the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois for a $1000 donation to fund 3D Printed Mask production!

Note: We are not seeking donations or recruiting additional volunteers. Get in touch with us for information/help starting your own project!
