SCIENCE IS SO KEWL!!! A 3-D Printer for Health in Haiti
A group in Haiti is using 3-D printers to make needed medical supplies.
iLab Haiti is using the new technology to make medical tools. The initiative is still testing out the applications, but there is plenty of promise. The project is a part of a larger initiative by the group to provide resources and support for Haitian-led innovation and solutions.
“iLab // Haiti has found its home at Haiti Communitere, an established resource center where tools and classes give locals a space to take the future of Haiti into their own hands,” says the group’s website.
Ashley Dara of iLab Haiti spoke with NPR about the idea behind the project.
