The Mask of BIS
BIS donated 50 face shields and ten eye masks to the München Klinik Schwabing and the Klinikum Dritter Orden. Robert Clements, our Head of Department of Design Technology, produced the items using a 3D printer from BIS.
"My son Benjamin (Grade 2) helped me with the 3D printing of the frames and my daughter Naomi (Grade 4) laminated all the visors," said the Scottish teacher. Rob was inspired by social media postings from DesignTech teachers and other schools around the world, who had produced similar, much needed material for doctors, nurses and care workers.
And there was also a sad reason that motivated him to get involved: his grandfather in Scotland recently died of the Coronavirus. "The great gratitude of the clinics has made it clear that our help is important. We continue to produce for nursing homes in northern Germany and for the Helios Amper Klinikum in Dachau," says BIS teacher Clements.
