2020 Covid-19 Relief Effort

The COVID-19 pandmeic has affected all aspects of life and wellness in America. In these uncertain times, FLYSET.org has dedicated itself to assisting in the fight against COVID-19 and the healthcare crisis. We have broken up this task into four initiatives:

(Front #2) We are working with a few local FTC teams (8565, 11472, 7172, 11341, 11366), a local FRC team (6171) and Prof. Bin Hu of UTD in 3D printing the following face shield and ear guards for donation to Health Care professionals. If you have need, please fill in the request form:
