Virtual Wednesday Nite @ The Lab

"Engineering, Innovation and Ingenuity in Response to Covid" Lennon Rodgers, Engineering

Event Details

Wednesday, December 2, 2020
7-8:15 p.m.
In March of this year UW Health urgently reached out to Lennon Rodgers in the College of Engineering to help prepare for a surge in COVID-19 cases. The focus was initially on designing and manufacturing face shields, but soon expanded to other projects to help combat the spread of COVID-19. This “Badger Shield” effort was highlighted in the Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine, Nature and others because of important university collaborations.
