Cardinal Ritter High School

Engineering Program 3D Prints Prosthetic Hand

Last year, Cardinal Ritter's engineering program acquired two 3D printers provided by 3D Parts Manufacturing. This year, Ms. Carita Girman searched for a meaningful project for the new printers and found one.
E-nabling The Future, an organization of 3D printing volunteers, paired Ms. Girman's class with a 6-year-old named Chelsea who lives in Toronto, Canada. Chelsea was born without fingers and Girman's class designed and printed a functional prosthetic hand. A WISH-TV news team was on campus to capture the combination of technology and good will.
