Heroes Among Us: La Cañada Flintridge students make face shields for frontline medical workers
LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. - A group of La Cañada Flintridge high school students is spending their time in quarantine making personal protective equipment for frontline medical workers by using 3D printers.
La Canada High School Junior JT Salcido started the group called “La Canada High School Cares.”
Salcido was able to convince his science teacher and principal to loan several 3D printers to him to manufacture the face shields.
Each printer can make about 15 shields per day.
The students have made hundreds of them and the face shields have already being used in nearby hospitals.
In addition, the teen students are raising money to make more face shields, which cost about $1.50 each.
