Project Overview

In accordance with our mission statement, LRC supports projects that encourage children and teens to use science and engineering knowledge to help solve real-world problems. With the current emergency of COVID-19 in our area, we activated the following projects (see terms and conditions):

Livingston Shield

Livingston Shield

Livingston Shield

Since March 28, 2020, current and former LRC teams have been working to use 3D printing process and other techniques to produce reusable face shields for frontline healthcare workers and first responders who desperately need the protection. LRC teams (grades 7-10) collaborated in redesigning of a popular face shield to improve airflow and printing speed. It is known as the “Livingston Shield“. We have been printing the Livingston Shield design since April 3. See the Livingston Shield project page for details.

As of May 26, we have made and donated more than 3,800 reusable face shields. The recipients included many departments (outpatient, cancer center, infusion center, inpatient oncology, radiation oncology, hospitalist program, radiology, labor and delivery, X-Ray, surgical, burn ICU, PACU, CTICU, CCU, ICU, ER, pediatric ER and EMT) in 16 hospitals:
