The Bunsold After School Enrichment (BASE) Program, funded by the ODE 21st Century Learning Center Grant, has 12 3-D printers that students are using to create masks which are being offered to local citizens for free. The masks, designed by Rowan University, are comprised of a plastic frame with a filter system that uses ordinary, replaceable shop towels.
