3D Printing Prosthetics to Teach Engineering, Anatomy, and Empathy

Created in collaboration with e-NABLE, this course engages teachers in powerful professional development that enables them to engage learners in empathy, problem-solving, and skill building as students learn about limb differences, anatomy, 3D printing, and assembling prosthetic hands. 


Learning Outcomes
