Gowana technology teacher Andrew Mink is spearheading a project to produce 3D printed face shields for local health care workers. Robin Gawrys, Gowana Principal and her daughter, Megan Gawrys, registered nurse at Saratoga Hospital and Shen substitute nurse, discovered  plans for surgical mask straps that could be made using the same technology.  The strap would alleviate some of the stress on a medical professional’s ears due to wearing a mask at all times while working in the hospital. Ms. Gawrys recently shared a prototype of the straps with the healthcare workers in her unit.  Michelle Little, Unit Director asked if more straps could be produced for her staff. Mr. Mink is partnering with local agencies to organize the delivery of the face shields to health care facilities in New York State.
