Students Using Skills to Help Community 04/30/2020


Kudos to Career and Technical Education (CTE) students at Jay M. Robinson and Mount Pleasant High Schools for partnering with CTE students from Kannapolis City Schools and putting their 3-D printing skills to work in support of our community’s healthcare workers and first responders.


They are working to produce 2,000 ear protectors for Atrium Cabarrus staff to help their masks fit more comfortably and are scheduled to deliver them on Friday, May 1st. The students also have produced and printed masks, face shields and components, and other assistive devices for those serving on the front lines.


This project would not have been possible without funding from Piedmont Asphalt Paving Company and First Citizens Bank for the materials needed. We also say thank you to the Jimmie Johnson Foundation for funding the 3D printers in the Jay M. Robinson High School Fab Lab and to the Cabarrus Chamber for coordinating this effort.
