STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma State University engineers are working to prototype and manufacture protective masks and face shields to donate.

The team at OSU's ENDEAVOR lab has been running 20 3D printers around the clock, according to a statement released by OSU officials. The lab has a demand for about 120 face shields a day.

Officials say the protective equipment will be donated to first responders in the Stillwater community and medical professionals at Stillwater Medical Center and the Family Medicine Residency Program at AllianceHealth Durant in Durant, Oklahoma.
