[ARCHIVED] Engineering Students Makes Ventilator in Dorm Room


Unprecedented times requires unprecedented ingenuity. NewRo Cheers go out to Jacob Goodman, New Rochelle native and current mechanical engineering student at Binghamton University, who was challenged by a professor to come up with a solution for the ventilator shortage problem. Within the course of one weekend, Jacob had assembled a ventilator with parts he purchased and repurposed from Wal-Mart that included a lunchbox, a collapsible camping water bottle, and a silicone straw. Jacob shared his design online to get feedback and allow for further refinement of his prototype in hopes that it could potentially become market-worthy one day.
