Trojan Shield: 3D Printed Face Shields

In response to the increasing case rate of Covid-19, I found it important to create a brand of face shields that would give people additional facial protection during this pandemic. Trojan Shield along with many other face shield brands is striving towards creating a more socially normal environment that everyone is happier in. Face shields allow visibility for verbal and nonverbal communication whereas face masks limit these verbal cues that we need to communicate efficiently.

The goal of the Trojan Shield brand is to provide Troy University with another option of facial protection that is unique to Troy and allows normal social interaction to take place inside and outside of the classroom. Wearing a face mask has interrupted social behavior by making it difficult to understand and recognize one another. Face masks also are not comfortable to wear for long periods of time because they make it difficult to breathe, fog up glasses, and increase anxiety. I would like to eliminate these problems that people are having with wearing a face mask by providing a safe alternative option with the Trojan Shield.
