EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- Using 3D printers, educators and staff from the EVSC are making face shields for local community organizations. The effort started when EVSC student data analyst, Michael Stauth started making masks with help from Ivy Tech staff member Donna Zimmerman.

Gayle Kiesel from Harrison High School and EVSC educator Kerry Sensenbrenner also joined the effort by helping connect makers with people who want to donate supplies. Mackin Group donated rolls of filament plastic to the effort but organizers say more is needed.

Each face shield requires 18 meters or 52 grams of filament plastic and each maker is currently funding filament or fabric costs. Kiesel is requesting supporters to donate to the EVSC Foundation to help them fulfill requests from the community. The foundation is matching donations up to $2000.
