Young learned about a program E-Nable the Future three years ago during a technology seminar at our local Chattahoochee-Flint RESA. A video showed students printing prosthetic hands for kids and adults all over the world. She set a goal that day to get her students involved in this program. After learning that Crisp County High School had a 3D printer, Young was ecstatic about the possibilities. She dove head first into learning how to 3D print and incorporating 3D printing into her classroom. At the beginning of this semester, she introduced prosthetics to her anatomy class while teaching the skeletal system. She had an E-Nable the future prosthetic kit and three of her students took special interest, Da’Shanti Woodson, Ka’Jarvis Daniel, NiKujha Smith. Upon learning about the program, the students decided to print and assemble a full prosthetic hand and apply for […]
