A University of Rochester team of engineers is using their problem-solving skills to help combat COVID-19.
The Rochester team of mechanical engineers teamed up with a local volunteer organization, Face Shields ROC. They utilized 3-D printers to create plastic face shields. This type of personal protective equipment (PPE) plays a critical role for medical professionals tending to those with the coronavirus.
The Rochester team alone created almost 3,000 face shields, which will go to caregivers in need of PPE.
