Students in the biomedical health science, engineering, and robotics program at St. Luke’s Episcopal School create 3D prosthetics as part of an augmented STEMM curriculum. The project at this Mobile, AL, school consists of printing three dimensional (3D) prosthetic hands, assembling and testing them, and then shipping around the globe to children in need. The hands are provided at no cost to recipients. As a 2018 SAIS Stephen P. Robinson Collaboration Grant recipient, the school partnered with neighboring Covenant Christian School to share this technology and global community service project. As a result, Covenant now plans to make this an annual project as well.
