3D Printing Prosthetic Hands [Video]

Here's a story from the March 12 episode of Classroom Close-up, NJ about students at Southern Regional High School who are building 3D printed prosthetic hands.

Give the World a Helping Hand
At-risk students from Southern Regional High School in Manahawkin collaborate with students in an advanced Anatomy and Physiology class to design and build 3D-printed prosthetic hands for those in need. Using equipment purchased through a HIPP grant, students learn to use CAD software and print the hand components. At the same time they're learning STEM skills, the at-risk students are able to develop communication and life skills.
