Runnymede pupils create equipment for hospitals

We are extremely proud of two of our Year 11 pupils, Eduardo M. and Andrés R., who are creating protective equipment to send to hospitals around Madrid.

Here is what they had to say about their project:
“We found a community of people in Madrid with the ability and interest to manufacture protective gear and equipment for hospitals, free of charge.
In the Fuencarral - El Pardo district, our daily production averages approximately 200 - 300 pieces of equipment per day and overall, we have managed to deliver over 6000 pieces of equipment to hospitals such as Ramón y Cajal, La Paz and IFEMA as well as to many ‘residencias’ for older people all over Madrid.
Between the both of us we have managed to produce 283 face shield structures which are then completed with an elastic band and a transparent A4 sheet of PVC. Each of us had received two 3D printers in order to help with production.”

Fantastic work boys!
