WORTON — Using skills they’ve learned in the classroom, four Kent County High School students are making a real world impact by helping keep their community protected from COVID-19.
Since the outbreak of a novel strand of the coronavirus, Sam Peregoy, Brandon Myers, Jordyn Cox Pemberton and Giuseppe Gordillo are using 3D printers to create face masks and adjustable headbands that help hold masks in place — printing close to 20 masks between the four students.
Some of the masks are being used by Kent County Public Schools faculty who work in food service. Sam Peregoy’s father Ken also is helping coordinate distribution of the masks to health care workers.
As the students have already used the high school’s existing filament, or the material utilized to print the masks, their production is on hold for the time being.
