As we continue through this crisis as a community, we continue to face unprecedented challenges laid before us. But with every hardship comes the opportunity to work hard in hand and rebuild with hope, belief and renewed strength.
The stories here represent the spirit of the Taylorian community coming together in a time of crisis to give back, contribute, and do what it takes to help the communities around us.
Let's rise and forge a path forward, together.
The Taylor's Me.reka Makerspace is collaborating with local communities, makers, and volunteers to produce much needed PPE equipment for our front liners. As of April, over 20,000 face shields, 21,000 replacements, 1,400 aerochambers, and 50 isolation boxes have been provided to front liners.
The FHMS team took up the initiative to produce hand sanitisers to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus. The sanitisers were produced in accordance with WHO-recommended formulations, sampled, and subjected to tests according to the recommended protocol. Over 70 litres of hand sanitisers have been provided campus-wide.
A team of lecturers from the Taylor's School of Medicine and Computing & Engineering, designed and 3D-printed Hijab Friendly, reusable mask straps using the facilities at Taylor's. With more than a 1,000 face shields and 1,500 mask straps being provided to 13 different hospitals so far, the team continues to produce mask straps for our front liners to date.
As the nation moves towards online learning, not everyone is fortunate to have the access to this necessity at home.
To bridge this, Taylor’s Makerspace, who joined forces with Taylor's students from Taylor’s Makers Club, Robotics Club, and Agents of Tech, will be building e-Learning devices for the children in the community!
