Mountain House High School Students Produce Face Shields For San Joaquin General Hospital



Mountain House High School students Jacqueline and Jordan Prawira have produced and donated over 750 face shields to San Joaquin General Hospital and San Joaquin County Clinics. Their goal is to produce and donate 1,000 shields by the end of the Summer.

Their assembly process begins in the revamped science room at Mountain House High school. After the 3D printed face shields are produced, they are mounted to the durable frames to create the finished visor. The completed face shields are then sterilized and packaged in groups of 10-12 before scheduling their delivery. The Prawiras have also produced instructional videos, accessible on the packages of face shields, which guide the face shield user through properly wearing the shields, as well as, a special “thank you” video to healthcare workers providing COVID-19 patient care. Jacqueline and Jordan deliver the 3D printed face shields weekly to the Hospital.
