Changing lives with Innovation
This is no ordinary 3D printing camp, this is using technology for humanitarian aid!
In collaboration with the Enabling The Future project, children participating in this program will design, create and deliver a prosthetic robotic hand to underprivileged children throughout the world. 1 in 2000 children are born each day that can benefit from a prosthetic device produced in conjunction with this program. Over 6000 prosthetic arms have already been successfully donated by Enabling The Future.
This highly focused camp teaches how a group of STEM students can come together and provide access to life-improving technology. We have built a special curriculum, utilizing all of TechLabs’ resources, to engage children in a highly focused project where they will get to experience the impact of open source technology to lower barriers to innovation and provide access to life-improving technology. Learning objectives include 3D design and printing techniques, circuitry, sensors, and open source research skills
