In summer STEM program, high school students design 3-D printed hands for kids in need

A new summer STEM program is giving high school students from across Western New York the opportunity to help kids in need through 3-D printing and design.

On Thursday, the lunchroom at Health Sciences Charter School in Buffalo bustled with the sounds of 45 excited high school students. They’d all been brought together for a new summer program focused on STEM education.

As the morning began, three young children took seats amongst the students, and teachers began to interview them.

“What do you like to do?” asked technology education teacher Ed Hawkins.

“I like to play,” replied an initially shy Katelyn McCarthy from Derby.

Like the other two children interviewed, Katelyn was born with one partial forearm and no hand. Her mother, Amy, described the nine year old as outgoing once she opens up, and said the things Katelyn has been able to do with one hand have not been “challenges,” just thing that take a little longer to learn.

“It’s definitely made her more determined,” said Amy. “It makes her try a whole lot harder at things. She doesn’t give up. She tries and tries and tries until she gets it. She recently learned how to tie her shoes, ride her bike – just things that took a little longer, but she learned how to do it.”

Katelyn has had prosthetics since she was an infant – some of which have been heavy or difficult to use. But come August, she’ll get a new light-weight prosthetic limb – 3-D printed, and designed by the students of the Hand in Hand program.

“In this program, kids are going to learn anatomy. They’re going to learn about an achievable biomedical career. They’re going to learn about opportunities that are right here in Western New York and they’re going to create something that’s going to help somebody, and somebody right in their neighborhood,” explained Cherie Messore, Executive Director of Western New York STEM.

WNY STEM is Hand in Hand’s leading organizer. Collaborating with AT&T, the University at Buffalo, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and local schools, they put the call out for teachers and students interested in taking part in the program.

Ed Hawkins was one of them, and he ended up taking the lead educator role in Hand in Hand. Hawkins has a strong background in 3-D printing, having done it for years with his own students at Sweet Home Senior High School. And while he doesn’t have training in occupational therapy or medicine, Hawkins said getting to know the workings of the body so that he can teach students about it is all in looking at it from a technical perspective.

“It’s a biological system, but it’s really down to mechanics,” said Hawkins. “There’s hinges and tendons that work like cables. For myself, I try to break it down into a mechanical system.”

Hawkins also isn’t the only one teaching. Before they met Katelyn and the other recipients, the students met two occupational therapists who explained the realities of life with one hand. One of them even shared his personal experience as an amputee. From that training, students like future 11th grader Felice Masumbuko learned what’s important.

“You need to know math and science, like the geometry. You have to know the biometrics of your hands, eyes, all of that. Biometrics is examples like iris scans, retina scans, how the vessels are formed in your hand. You need to know all of that because even a slight mistake can mess up the whole product,” said Masumbuko.

After measurements of Katelyn and the other recipients’ limbs are taken, it’s time for the students to focus on the first steps in planning. While that happens, the children get a chance to visit a room down the hall filled with computers and 3-D printers – one of them cooling from a recent project, while another hums, slowly and carefully printing keepsake nametags for the students.

The hands can be designed with various colors and customization like superhero and princess designs. Katelyn can’t be certain yet what color will be available, but she’s got something in mind.

“I really want it to be blue and pink,” she said.

Amy expects the new hand will help expand her daughter’s capability, and she appreciates what the Hand in Hand program offers both Katelyn and the students.

“She’s helping them see what they are creating and that it’s going to help her,” said Amy. “And I like that she’s going to be able to see how it’s done and how it’s created and how they’ve done it for her.”

The next step in the project is what Messore described as a “full court press” to design the hands, print prototypes, and get final products to a fabricator in East Aurora – all within the next week. Three hands will be created for the local children, and one for a child in India found through a community of 3D printers called e-NABLE – who coordinate projects like these around the world. And though it’s a short-term project, the impact of doing social good is already showing in students like soon-to-be 9th grader Cameren Hunley, who has begun to consider his own life.

“I look back when I see these children, I look back at my life and see all the things I did with these two hands,” said Hunley. “And then they have one, and it’s like, ‘What is it like to have one hand and not struggle to do things – things that other people do?’”

Cameren’s not the only one. Being a parent, as well as an educator, Ed Hawkins has quickly built an emotional connection to “Hand in Hand” and the children it will help.

“It’s cool to see these kids who have a significant deficit…they’re just like regular kids,” said a misty-eyed Hawkins. “We’re just trying to make it a little bit better.”
