Face to Face with Real Innovation

Camberwell Grammar School students have watched a staff idea turn into thousands of reusable face shields for frontline COVID-19 medical staff.

After Victoria’s first coronavirus lockdown, Camberwell Grammar School information and communications technology integrator Julian Visser began making face shields using his 3D printer at home for friends working in hospitals.

With word of mouth spreading and demand increasing, Mr Visser approached the school to use its 10 3D printers, leading to the founding of the Boye Medical Group.

“I thought if this could be helpful, why not,” Mr Visser said.

“It went from one shield to many thousands. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of the school.

“ It’s a great example of innovative design. For students, I hope this can be a real-world example of going from an idea to full production in a short period of time.”

Now with a manufacturing base in Dandenong, the group has been contracted by the government to make 35,000 shields by the end of the month and is taking public orders.
