Operation: NJ Strong with PPE
Making & Donating Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for Local Hospitals in New Jersey
Founders of NJ Strong with PPE Group: Audrey Su & William Su
Started from Holmdel, NJ. we use 3D printing technology learned from STEM and Robotic Program to make PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) and donate to local hospitals in NJ in a time of crisis from Coronavirus. My goal is to create 1000 face-shields or more if needed, based on funding, and donations. and the duration of Covid-19. Due to a shortage of PPE face-shields, I have decided to make as many of them possible to benefit the first responders to prevent infections from the deadly virus. We would like to invite more high school and middle school students to help this cause. We also would be happy to teach young kids and explain our project to them. Together, we can help NJ and make it stronger with this effort.
