ASSEMBLE A 3D-PRINTED PROSTHETIC AT THE LIVERMORE PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Livermore Public Library along with Granada High School Senior Mannu Singhal will host two all day e-NABLE Hand-a-Thons during the month of February. These STEM workshops will take place on Saturday, February 10 and Saturday, February 17, and will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Civic Center Library, 1188 S. Livermore Ave. The workshops will be identical.
This opportunity is open to 6th – 8th graders interested in STEM, 3D-printing, and using tools. Snacks will be provided but participants will need to bring their own lunch. All assembly materials and instructions will be provided. Participants will gain problem solving skills, inspiration, and confidence. This is an interactive way to learn how engineering benefits humanity, and the prosthetic hands that are assembled at the Hand-a-Thons will actually be distributed by e-NABLE to those in need around the world. Participants will be eligible to earn volunteer hours. Mannu Singhal earned her e-NABLE certification though Credly, an online badging website. Participants can earn a Hand-a-Thon badge by uploading photographic proof to https://credly.com/recipients/101208.
There are ten openings per workshop for this program and registration is required. To register, visit tinyurl.com/signuphand.

This program is part of February’s Science and Engineering Month.
