EurekaLab Online

While school is closed and distance learning is in full swing, much of the Danoff Family Innovation Center will not be available. But the EurekaLab is an idea even more than a physical place! It is is a belief that creativity, design, innovation, and making are an integral part of an educational community. There's still a great maker community at the Meadowbrook School. Throughout the distance learning period, we will share fun maker projects and innovative resources to keep you in the EurekaLab spirit.

EurekaLab Sewers Can Make Face Masks

Ms. Fisher has cotton fabric and elastic at home for you to sew masks. If you need fabric, thread or elastic, email Ms. Fisher, with your postal mailing address, and she will put the materials in the mail to you. 

Follow this pattern.

Bring the completed masks to any of Cambridge Health Alliance’s hospitals (Cambridge, Everett or Somerville Hospitals) and drop them off at the main entrance with Public Safety.  

Or, drop them off at Gather Here.

For more details, see this webpage from the Cambridge Hospital.

EurekaLab 3D Printers Producing Parts for Full Face Masks

Mr. Schmid and Ms. Fisher are 3D printing parts for full face masks on the EurekaLab Printers. 

Do you have a 3D printer? Would you like to help?

The current design we are printing is budmen, v3. It is available here.

Print the parts using PLA plastic.

After printing, place the parts in a new, sealed ziplock bag for 3 days.
