The Third Annual Ripken Foundation STEM Competition

Jan 17, 2020

We hosted our 3rd Annual Ripken Foundation STEM Competition where kids from five STEM Centers across the country participated in the competition sponsored by Battelle. Teams were challenged to design a prosthetic hand for a patient who had their left hand amputated just above the wrist. Each team came up with a STEM-based solution that ensured the patient would be able to pick-up and hold an 8 oz. glass of water with their prosthetic hand. The Melrose School from Harrisburg, PA was this year's winner.
