Creating during a pandemic

Northrop Grumman’s maker spaces closed. Store supplies limited. Shipping delayed.

How do makers create during a pandemic? Well, they repurpose old shipping boxes, 3D print any missing parts and dig into “that jar” at home full of screws and nails.

Northrop Grumman employees were encouraged to share their home projects to showcase creativity born out of the pandemic.

“We have so many talented people in our workforce and we only see a fraction of their talent in the workplace,” said Tony Long, manager of innovation at Northrop Grumman. “Seeing what people do on their own time and seeing the breadth of their talent and interests really connects us at a different level. It’s not just a bunch of people working at a defense company. These people have hobbies, interests and passions.”
