Girls engineering club educates peers, looks at responses to coronavirus

March 11, 2020

Nearly two-dozen girls at Del Mar Middle School are aiming to educate their peers about the coronavirus while also using their science and engineering skills to experiment with ways to respond to the threat of infection. They’ve also been using laser cutters and 3-D printers to make polypropylene facemasks, are trying to replicate hazmat suits and are working to secure materials to make hand sanitizer. “Our goal is not to create a panic but to educate our community about sensible ways to prevent the coronavirus from spreading,” says Del Mar teacher Nate MacDonald, who runs the girls engineering club. (Rachel Simpson photo / For The Ark)
