Hello, I am Mikael Wong, I am 13 years old and I want to help stop Covid-19.

When COVID-19 first started in Malaysia, there was a shortage of PPE for the frontliners. My father was involved in volunteering to 3D-print faceshields and I decided that I wanted to help the frontliners as well. So I learned about 3D printing and joined the other volunteers to help 3D-print the faceshields at home. These faceshields are then sent to hospitals and clinics all over Malaysia. Making the 3D printed face shields was really a 24-hour thing because the 3D printer prints very slowly and someone needs to monitor the printing so that the 3D printer does not come across any problems.

This is how a completed faceshield looks like


I also did a Lego stop-motion video on the correct SOP to stop the spread of COVID-19 because when it first started, there were a lot of misconceptions going around and many people were not aware. So my sister and I did a PSA to be shared on Youtube.
