Stem covid 19 response

 

 

 

 

 

As our communities stay home, stay safe, and practice social distancing, the healthcare professionals and first responders in our state continue to go to work and save lives. The threat of COVID-19 has resulted in a shortage of critical personal protection equipment (PPE) needed to keep medical professionals safe. The STEM Action Center is partnering with local makers, industry, higher ed, and school districts to 3D print face shields to help fill the gap.

 

Want to get involved? Here’s how!

Prusa

Print the Prusa design:

The Prusa design works well for healthcare workers that have to wear their shields all day without removing them.

Mantaray Print the Manta Ray Verkstan design: 

This version of Verkstan design has been thoroughly tested by Weber State professor, John Sohl. The Verkstan is comfortable and requires fewer materials to produce. This design works well for people like first responders that will be taking their shield on and off throughout the day.

Clip Have a smaller printer but still want to help? Printing the Prusa shield clip is the solution.  These clips snap to the bottom of the Prusa shield to help with rigidity.

Earsaver Wearing disposable or cloth masks for long periods of time can do a number on your ears. These Ear Savers run along the back of the head and connect to the elastic on either side, removing the burden on your ears.

Filament Don’t have access to a 3D printer but still want to help? We’re collecting donations of filament and other resources to keep the printers around Utah printing! Donations are tax-deductible through the STEM foundation.
