Boy Uses 3D Printer To Make Face Shields For Medical Workers
A kid in California is making good use of his time and computer skills since school closed.
With school closed for six weeks, one California kid has been using his free time and computer skills to help others. Jayden Fadrigon, a nine-year-old from Antioch, has been into 3D printing since he was five and now he’s using his 3D printer to create face shields for healthcare workers on the frontline and his local churches.
He and his dad came up with the idea to make the face shields to help protect their family members who are working on the frontlines to fight the coronavirus. So far, they’ve created 100 of them and they’re not slowing down.
"I want to help people that work in the hospitals and I want to help other people in our community," Jayden says. “I hope that I can inspire other kids that have 3D printers to make more face shields for our community.”
