COVID-19 Face Shields from Khan Lab School

Help Khan Lab School contribute 3D-printed face-shields to healthcare workers working hard to combat COVID-19!

We are Nicholas and Robert, members of the Khan Lab School Student Leadership Team. Given the current pandemic crisis, we want to assist our essential health workers using all the resources we have access to (that includes both of our school’s 3D printers)! We have mobilized our printers, making the bottom pieces in one and the headbands in another.

Unfortunately, as many are aware, printing takes ink (or filament in this case), and we need as much as possible to achieve our goal of producing 200 units! That is where you can help. Any small donation can contribute to funds for our 3D printer filament. Each spool costs approximately $29 and allows us to produce roughly 10 shield headbands. Needless to say, more filament leads to more shields!

We are running our 3D printers off-site 24/7 while the school is closed, and we need your help purchasing more filament (Dremel Digilab 1.75 mm PLA & FlashForge Finder 1.75 mm PLA). Please see our Livestream:

A bit about our school:

Khan Lab School was developed with the philosophy that students are in control of their own education, encouraging project-based learning involving their passions. As a mastery-based school founded by Sal Khan (in association with Khan Academy), everyone is a teacher and everyone is a student! As a lab school, KLS is a model for innovation and education.

Thank you, Khan Lab School, for allowing us to utilize the printers!

Thank you, Maker Nexus, for allowing us to collaborate!
