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.
