As soon as SCH was closed due to the virus, faculty members David Cool and Peter Randall started thinking ahead. With the school’s 3D printers in hand, they set up home fabrication labs to produce face shield frames for local healthcare workers.
Over the last few weeks, David has had 5 printers humming in his living room, while Peter has had 3 chugging away in his basement. Together they have produced almost 400 face shields and raised over $1700 for supplies like filament and acetate for the shield part.
What's next? David plans to set up a sterilization assembly line to build, sterilize, and safely pack each shield in ziplock baggies for delivery. For anyone who happens to have a 3D printer, our innovative faculty members are using this Swedish design. Donations for supplies are still being graciously accepted via an SCH fundraiser as well.
