Physics Professor and Student Produce Face Shields to Donate

Dr. John Huckans, professor of Physics, and James "Jimmy" Catarroja, physics and EET major, have been busy producing approximately 100 face shields to help in the fight against COVID-19.  They have been using three separate 3D printers to make the shields.  Two of the printers are owned by the BU Physics Department and the third is on loan from Ginny Weibel of The Bloomsburg Children's Museum.  The face shields  will  delivered to the BU police department, who will then transport them to Geisinger Hospital in Danville.  Dr. Huckans and Jimmy Cararroja plan to continue to make the face shields as long are they are needed and are also planning to make more for area emergency services.
