COVID Mali The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science COVID Mali is a consortium of skilled engineers, designers, architects, and makers working on prototyping and refining PPE equipment and other medical supplies with localized raw materials in Bamako, Mali. Our team builds much-needed equipment including shields, gowns, prototypes for N95 equivalent respirators, and vacuum molding for bending/forming plastic or plexiglass (i.e. for face shields) to name a few. We plan to procure some raw materials abroad but aim to mainly rely on locally-procured materials for production, while simultaneously bolstering our local community partnerships for those who will fall most vulnerable to the virus.

ILAO seeks to gain insights from its website user data about who it serves, how it serves them, and how it can improve its services. New Other
Rapidly Deployable Breast Pump Ventilator to Combat Coronavirus The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science A simple, bare bones ventilator using parts that are readily available at a total cost of ~$300. The heart of the system is a widely used breast pump with the airflow reversed. We believe that there are thousands of these in dresser drawers and closets across the country that are not being used which can be used to complement new machines currently in the supply chain.

Washington DC COVID sitters The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science This is an opportunity for members of the GW Medical School community only. We are looking for a volunteer project manager to coordinate temporary daycare services for families of faculty and healthcare workers in the GW Medical School community who are devoting themselves to caring for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic and don’t have time to provide daycare for their own families. This project is patterned after the COVIDsitters project recently started at the University of Minnesota.
