Riverhead Donates 3D Printers

April 7, 2020

To assist health care workers responding to the COVID-19 crisis, the Riverhead Central School District has donated 3D printers to assist Stony Brook University’s iCreate department in printing face shields and personal protective equipment for health care workers on the front lines.

The donation of eight MakerBot 3D printers and 89 rolls of filament was a coordinated effort by Riverhead High School librarian Kim McGurk, Riverhead Middle School librarian Alyson Grossman, and members of the district’s technology, security, and buildings and grounds departments. All worked together to collect, inventory and deliver the printers and filament to Stony Brook on March 30.
