Frontier Schools Using 3D Printers to Create Face Shields for Medical Personnel
In reaction to the shortage of protective wear for medical personnel because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a small team of teachers at Frontier Schools is doing their part to help.
Mr. Azat Ovezov, Director of Science Curriculum, Shukru Kilic, Engineering Teacher, and Islam Kamilov, Computer Teacher, are working tirelessly in their homes with the school’s 3D printers to print and assemble face shields to donate.
Each shield takes about four hours to make and only costs about $1.00 in materials. Currently, they have produced 60 masks. The team is working with local hospitals, such as Truman Medical Center & St. Luke’s Hospital to arrange a donation of the shields while they continue to manufacture more shields inside their homes.
Currently, engineering teachers are also in the process of printing face mask straps. This will help individuals in the Kansas City area who will be heading back to work in the next few weeks.

The Greater Kansas City Science Fair Winner
Senior student, Rosa Hernandez, from Frontier STEM High School won the Gold Ribbon at The Greater Kansas City Science Fair. Her project was about Staphylococcus epidermidis resistance: A comparison of interventions to dysfunction a bacterium.
FSHS State of the Art Innovation Lab
Frontier Schools’ is building a modern, state-of-the-art Innovation Lab attached to the Frontier STEM High School.
This project-based approach is an essential part of immersive STEM education; it makes the experience real for the students. They will be able to conceive a project, be it a product or prototype, and follow the production process from conception to physical
reality. Students will understand the technology that powers their creations; both the
hardware and the software. The goal is to build a strong, authentic knowledge-based theory to applied skills in STEM education, ensuring Frontier’s high school graduates will
be prepared to enter collegiate level science, technology, engineering and mathematics
programs with the skills to succeed on day one.
