Making Face Shields as PPE
Wheeler’s Hirsch/Alperin Design | Innovate | Build Lab has pivoted to providing PPE face shields, making more than 400 frames in a multi-school public-private effort in Rhode Island. Here our DIB Lab Director Meghan Jimenez demonstrates two ways to make the shields’ frames.
Our latest DIB Lab Challenge is making color stickers of a place or program you love at Wheeler! See one in the block below.
