4/15/20 - Members of the Howell High School FIRST Robotics Team, the S.C.O.T.S. Bots Team 4776, have been supporting frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic by creating 3-D printed N95 masks. Using their personal 3-D printers, S.C.O.T.S. Bots team members have already created and donated more than 400 of the masks. In addition to the S.C.O.T.S. Bots, other members of the Livingston County Robotics Alliance, including the Brighton TechnoDogs Team 3707, the Fowlerville The F.A.S.T. Team 7056 and the Hartland Electro Eagles Team 3536, are also creating personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline workers. Collectively, the teams have donated more than 1,000 items, including N95 masks, face shields, and comfort strips for the backs of the masks.

To support frontline workers, FIRST in Michigan has launched the 1 Million PPE Challenge, which challenges FIRST Robotics teams in Michigan to collectively donate a total of 1 million face shields, face masks, and safety glasses to hospitals, first responders, and other frontline workers.
