COLORADO CTE RESPONDS TO COVID-19 CRISIS – USING OUR SKILLS & EQUIPMENT!

A huge shout-out to all of the CTE programs across Colorado who have put their 3-D printers to work making face shields and other parts to help our healthcare workers stay safe from COVID-19! According to a recent tweet, Cherry Creek Schools have made 1100 head bands for face shields. 
Pictured is SAI Division President, Charles Pearl, in the lab at Grandview HS in Cherry Creek. Also helping in this effort are teachers at Cherokee Trail HS, CCIC, Smokey Hill HS, Eaglecrest HS, Warren Tech, Middle Park HS, East Grand MS and probably a whole lot more schools that didn’t come up in a quick Google search…thank you ALL for your efforts in the fight against COVID-19!

Also a shout out to all the FCS teachers, students and others using their sewing skills to make cloth masks for family, friends and community members in need. Here are just a few examples of their work. Unknown quantities are being produced – at least 150 masks just from 3 FCS peeps…..

Technical College of the Rockies is sharing Nursing program hospital beds with the local hospital for overflow and donating scrubs to local nursing homes.
