Community Innovators Respond to COVID 19

The IDEA Lab at Red Rocks Community College.

Faculty, staff and students at Red Rocks Community College are coordinating with healthcare professionals and multiple institutions across Colorado for the COVID-19 response effort. 
Our goal is to respond to the most pressing medical needs in the midst of national uncertainty and confusion.

By donating to this fund you are:

  • Buying the materials to use for rapid prototyping so that we can get ventilator parts and medical protective gear into the hands of professionals for testing
  • Aiding the community of local people donating their time and expertise to address these critical shortages
  • Building towards a local/global community of makers, designers, and educators who are sharing and learning from each other

If you have questions about these funds or would like additional information, please email liz.cox@rrcc.edu, Director, The HUB: Center for Engagement and Innovation.
