Arkansas Maker Task Force

Making a difference in Arkansas during COVID-19

Arkansas, like many places around the globe, is facing a shortage of masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE).

The Innovation Hub is working with several hospitals and local universities to innovate new solutions to these supply gaps.

Over the past few days, we have been researching masks, face shields, materials, manufacturing options, supply lines, and more—as well as producing and iterating designs.

We aim to provide feedback to local makers on what hospitals need—and the designs they find most beneficial. Through this effort, we hope to give a platform for the Arkansas Maker community to discuss and develop solutions to every aspect of this uniquely challenging problem.

If you are a maker, you are needed. Please join us.
