The COVID-19 crisis has led to many people uniting to help our frontliners and health workers. Some people have expertise in fields that could greatly help in containing the spread of the virus.
Engineering and technology are only a couple among the many fields that have contributed during this pandemic. With this, the Technological University of the Philippines Taguig Alumni Association is encouraging other alumni associations and universities to do something similar to fight this pandemic. Their team is also open and willing to assist those who want to do the same.
In partnership with Junior Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers, TUPT launched Project CoVi3D. It is an effort that aims to produce 2,000 pieces of protective face shields through 3D printing. This would be part of the Protective Personal Equipment (PPE) that our frontliners are using this time. With the use of engineering technology, the will be able to provide these to frontliners.
