A 3D Printing Army Gearing Up to Help Healthcare Workers

Students make personal protective equipment for medical professionals

A Brooklyn teen, Karina Popovich, is helping healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19 to protect themselves.

As the coronavirus pandemic hit New York City, Karina decided to produce personal protective equipment with her 3D Printing skills. She soon found more than 200 other people all over the world who wanted to join the force to help. They formed “Makers for COVID-19”, a coalition that produces and donates equipment to medical professionals directly. They make a combination of 20,000 masks, shields, and ear protectors for more than 30 hospitals each week.
