The kids and teacher behind the challenge: our story
Hi. I'm Dr. Chris Craft. I teach the most amazing children on Earth. Officially, the class is called Introduction to S.T.E.M., but unofficially it's about helping kids find the interests and passions that can propel them through life. We invent, we problem-solve, we learn, and we have a lot of fun. Above all, we're striving to embody the notion that life is not about us. We work towards solving problems in our community and school, such as helping children that do not have two functioning hands.
The Prosthetic Kids project began when Carson, Corbyn, and McKenzie got fired up about the chance to really impact another child's life. You can read more about their story on People.com. We were so fortunate to win the Belk Service Learning challenge, and remain grateful for the support and love we received from Belk and Discovery Education.
I've heard from lots of educators, makerspaces, and libraries that want to get involved in printing prosthetics for children but do not know where to begin. The Hand Challenge was born of a desire to help anyone with access to a 3D Printer be able to be a part of work that can change the life of a child. Why not sign up to join us in the challenge?
