Engineering with a Purpose: Prosthetics (WAITLIST)

Have you ever wondered how Hiccup Haddock III’s artificial foot works in the How to Train Your Dragon series?  In this class, students will work in small groups to complete hands-on challenges and experiments related to prosthetics.  We will use the engineering design process to design, build, test, and improve a prosthetic bird beak, fish tail, elephant leg, and finger/hand.  We will also study real-life examples and perform challenges with each of our prosthetics to ensure our designs meet “client” needs.  This class will strengthen students’ empathy, perseverance, problem-solving skills, and much more.
