Louie Beardell was feeling kind of bored, what with his school on spring break and no chance to get outside and play sports with his buddies. He decided to try to save the world. Or one person, anyway. Or maybe 50. Or 100, according to a article in The Philadelphia Inquirer.
“My goal is to make 1,000,” said Beardell, 14, of the face shields for area hospital workers that he has been producing using 3D printers in the basement of his parents’ home in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.
