When the Iowa Department of Education asked if anyone had 3D printers that could be used for making parts for face shields, John F. Kennedy Catholic School jumped on the opportunity to help. JFK's technology coordinator, Dianne Siefers, took the machine to her house so she could operate it all day and night.
“Having our machine sit idle when out healthcare workers needed PPE just wasn’t right,” said Principal Chad Steimle.
They operated it for several days before their efforts were replaced by large manufacturers, but Steimle said they like to think that the little bit they could do made a difference to someone.
Thank you for helping your local healthcare workers, JFK!
