Schools cross the country have been shut down due to the pandemic. A Delhi student has used this time to make face shields for the police.
Face shields protect police personnel from getting infected by coronavirus while interacting with people. Zareb Vardhan, a class 10 student, has designed the protective equipment using 3D printers.
He purchased the 3D printer with his pocket money. His study room was transformed into a face shield production area. He says that over 10 such face shields can be made in one day using the machine.

Zareb is also in the process of making an advanced N-95 mask.
