Since Wednesday, April 8, a dozen students of all nationalities, confined to the campus, have been taking turns making visors at the school's FabLab from 9am to 9pm.
This solidarity action was set up in partnership with the Lyon University Hospital on a request and a model validated by the Hospices Civils de Lyon (HCL).
For a fortnight, our students supervise this production at a rate of about fifty visors per day, behind the additive manufacturing machines (3D printers with "PC or PLA" threads).
The implementation of this project was made possible thanks to the remote mobilisation of our teachers. A daily collection from HCL is organised with the highly motivated Makers.
At the same time, an operation to donate products (held by our research laboratories) to make hydroalcoholic gel is underway.
Day after day, the School is mobilising, in the greatest respect of the rules of containment and barrier gestures, to contribute to the fight against COVID-19.
We take advantage of this article to renew our admiration and support for the medical profession: a huge thank you to our medical staff!
