We have teamed up with Maker Mask to give teachers, students and makers everywhere the ability to make a positive impact on their communities by 3D printing respirator masks for those in need.
As a response to the desperate need for locally sourced PPE, the Maker Mask team has created the first open-source 3D printable mask being used by frontline and essential workers.
Learn the fundamentals of 3D printing and how to make a 3D printable NIH-approved respirator mask with our lesson plans.
Many of our lesson plans include helpful how-to videos, to walk you through everything you need to know.
Our lesson plans are easy to follow and can be used in class or at home. They include:
We’re proud to partner with pi-top to teach kids valuable hands-on 3D printing skills so they can make Maker Masks.
The Maker Mask Initiative is a grassroots response to the COVID19 crisis and it’s an all hands-on-deck effort that can also empower motivated kids to be part of the solution.
In the beginning there were two founders who decided to use 3D printing to prototype their idea for a mobile maker laptop. Although not realizing it at the time, the pi-top founders Jesse Lozano and Ryan Dunwoody created the first 3D printable laptop in 2014, as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2017. Fast forward to 2020 we have a full ecosystem of kits, software and content to get you making and learning core STEM skills. Join us in learning how you can use this technology to benefit your community and make things you care about.
