Duration – 45 mins

Years ago, if you needed an artificial hand, a metal hook strapped to your arms was provided. Fortunately there have been fantastic advances since then. Engineers and doctors working together have developed such excellent prosthetic limbs. In this workshop we will think about the hand, what it needs to be able to do and build one to meet our specification.
