As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to expand globally, the supply chain for masks and face shields continues to be stressed. Lower School STEM Teacher Shannon LoRusso quickly found a way to help by using a 3D printer to print Montana Masks and Face Shields for hospital use. Before Admiral Farragut Academy closed, she took the 3D printer from the Lower School STEM Lab home and the school provided her materials such as the computer and numerous rolls of PLA filament.
Below are three videos from our division heads including Head of Lower School Anita Fine, Head of Upper School and Assistant Headmaster Dr. Tom McGlinn, and Director of Residential Life Pete Vaughn. We miss our students and hope that everyone is adapting to online learning, are safe and healthy, and have a great rest of the school year.
