Inspired by the UH chapter of eNABLE, a group that provides 3D-printed prosthetic hands to those in need, Alief ISD students spent their summer days designing and building prosthetic hands using blueprints posted online by the UH eNABLE students.

Fourth and fifth graders taking part in the Alief ISD STEM Academy summer program put together the prosthetics by hand, learning fundamental concepts of engineering along the way.

The summer camp culminated in a STEM Showcase event at Miller Intermediate School on June 14, wherein the elementary school students presented six completed prosthetic hands to UH eNABLE co-founders Javier Castro and Daniel Bahrt.

“These six hands represent six people who’s lives will be changed thanks to all of you,” said Castro, who accepted the prosthetics on behalf of the UH eNABLE chapter.
