HUNTSVILLE – While the nation braces for the COVID-19 surge, Madison-native, Evan Meier, a 6th grade student at Discovery Middle, has stepped up to produce masks and face shields for hospital care workers.

It’s a mission he’s committed himself to, considering the demand for the protective equipment and his desire to make full use of the 3D printer he had earned for making good grades at school.

“My son has been in the gifted learning classes where they use 3D printers and software to design items for their personal projects,” said Thomas O. Meier, chief, Military Support Division, Installation Support and Programs Management Directorate, U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville. “We spent $130 each to purchase a 3D printer and he’s since used it for school projects, gifts, tools, fun gadgets and even a key chain holder that keeps an I-Phone headphone.”
