Father and son team up to make 3D masks for hospital

AHamilton High School teacher and his son made masks from a 3D printer for healthcare workers to be certain they are ready to handle a crisis where Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is needed.

On Friday, Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital received 60 of the hard-shell masks for the safety of hospital staff.

“These masks are really cool. They fit comfortably, are not heavy and will be put to good use,” said Cheri Clapsaddle, inpatient charge nurse. “It is wonderful that the high school is helping the students make a difference.”

Michael Bonnes, computer science and marketing teacher, and his son Hunter, a sophomore, stepped up and used their time of self-isolation (for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus) wisely.

“It’s been a lot of fun, a good distraction from the current situation and by having my son help me it was something positive to do together as opposed to the doom and gloom,” Michael Bonnes said. “It was a good way to partner to show that in a town like Hamilton with central hubs of the school and hospital we support one another.”

The 3D printer is usually in Bonner’s classroom, but he received permission to take it home and print around the clock.
