Community Involvement

Consistent with our core values, we at Alert Innovation are mindful of our responsibility to serve the community in which we live and work. Here are some of the ways our team members are sharing their talents with the community:

3D Printed Face Shields for First Responders

When medical first responders were running low on Personal Protective Equipment during the COVID 19 crisis, “Alertians” used 3D printers in our R&D lab to produce face shields which were donated to a nearby hospital, St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Nashua, NH.

Encouraging the Next Generation of Robotic Engineers

Alert Innovation is proud to sponsor the local FIRST Robotics team from Billerica Memorial High School (Team 4909). The team is now 33 members strong and achieved a record 30% female participation. The 2020 competition required them to build a robot that can intake power cells (balls), score by shooting into a “Power Port,” and manipulate control panels to activate stages of the shield generator. Learn more about Team 4909.
