Kyle Warren, a senior at Irondale High School and member of the KnightKrawler Robotics Team, uses a 3D printer to print a face shield. Since COVID-19 made its way to Minnesota, the team has set up shop in Chippewa Middle School and used the school’s 3D printers and laser cutters to create personal protective equipment for healthcare and other emergency workers. They have a goal of producing at least 1,000 face shields a week. Supplies and materials are covered through the Mounds View Schools Education Foundation, as well as the team’s refunded World Championship competition fee that can no longer be used. The robotics season was cancelled after the team qualified to compete in the championship tournament, which would have taken place in April.
