Joshua, a 7th-grade student at Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Lauderdale, has a passion for engineering.

After perfecting his robotics skills over the past three years, Joshua had to redirect his disappointment of not being able to compete in the 2020 VEX Robotics World Championship into an act of kindness for the front line healthcare workers in his community.

Wanting to give back during the COVID-19 pandemic, he brainstormed with his Robotics Coach, Amy DelBusto, on ways he could help, using his 3-D printer at home.

With his love of building and creating, the Pompano Beach teen set a goal of donating 200 face shields to the Healthcare Heroes at Northwest Medical Center.

Kristen Lindenboom, Chief Operating Officer of Northwest Medical was thankful to everyone who donated, including, Joshua for his innovation, kindness, and generosity, and FujiFilms for supplying the plastic and UniqueDieCutting for donating the die and cutting the plastic.”
“Our team is so appreciative and grateful.”
