Face Shields to Fight COVID-19

Hi! We are GarageBot 15146, an independent robotics team from San Diego, California, competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge. 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our health care heroes on the front lines have been experiencing a shortage of personal protective equipment. Being a group of tinkerers and builders, we knew we could use our experience to help create 3D printed face shields. Over the past few weeks, we have been dedicating our time, effort, and resources to produce these much needed protective equipment, running our two 3D printers nonstop. We have been working closely with our local hospitals like Sharp Rees-Stealy to print hundreds of these face shields, helping to save the lives of our frontline heroes, their families, and the community! 

However, we are running out of much-needed filament and plastic transparency shields required to continuously produce these masks, so we are asking for your help. Any donation you can provide will help save lives! 

Thank you for your generous donation! Together, we can protect these amazing healthcare heroes and win this battle!
