This designation allows MakerspaceCT to be a certified hub in the Hartford area to print, build, and deliver prosthetic hands to people in need.This will improve the lives of amputees while concurrently teaching STEM skills to local students. Imagine the training these students will receive while building empathy by giving a prosthetic to a peer in need.
HIGH SCHOOL ages 14 - 18 and from all demographics in the Hartford region.
Students will learn the process of additive manufacturing, CAD design, and post processing while engaging in a meaningful project intent on helping those in need.
