Shields Against COVID-19

Hello! We are FIRST Tech Challenge team #11212 The Clueless. Because the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to get worse and the protective supplies for the doctors, healthcare providers, and essential workers are still in shortage, we encourage everyone to contribute their time and expertise to produce face shields at home. Our team has started to utilize our own 3D printers (we have eight of them) to print face shield frames. However, there are several materials we will need to purchase. We decided to run a GoFundMe campaign on 3/28 and hoped to raise $500 to build 100 face shields. In two days, we raised over $1250, so we increased our target to 200 face shields by April 10th. Thanks to all the generous donors, the total funding reached $2580 in one week. We had to pause the fundraising so we could focus on delivering the shields. So far, we have shipped over 500 shields to Kaiser Permanente, UCSD, Sharp, Tri-City Medical Center, Palomar Health, Alvarado Hospital, and Scripps Hospital. We have also shipped PPE packages to hospitals in cities outside of San Diego such as the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, USC Keck, and the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Our project has generated great interest among our community. We give massive thanks to Torrey Hill Technologies for donating two 3D printers, to 3D Systems for donating 3D printed parts, and to FOX 5 and NBC 7 for reporting our story. More requests came to us through the news and social media. We have opened our fundraiser again so we can purchase materials for another 600 face shields. We are exploring new PET materials and foam designs to further improve the quality and ease of use of the current design. After shipping the first 600 face shields by this Saturday (4/11), our goal is to deliver another 600 shields in two weeks (4/25). 

Thank you for your generous donation to our healthcare heroes. Together, we will win this battle!
