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 

  • Understand how to address limb differences with students.
  • Gain practical tools and activities to help students use empathy to understand limb differences. 
  • Connect prosthetic printing work to anatomy and biology learning goals. 
  • Guide students through the creation of a prosthetic hand prototype. 
  • Engage students in comparing and contrasting hand anatomy to that of their prototype/3D printed version. 
  • Facilitate students in the printing and assembly of a 3D printed hand. 
  • Empower students to see how they can use their resources to make an impact for others.
