Exploratorium provides equipment for front line hospital workers

While the museum’s doors are closed to the public, the Exploratorium is supporting the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. The museum collected n95 masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) from its science labs to donate to the staff at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Their engineers have also devised a 3D printing process that can produce hospital face shields in minutes, and plan to make 200 pieces a day and publish the designs for others to use.
