Do you have any examples (other than the images in the lesson) of hands that have been made? Thank you
Just sample of the hands would be awesome and any other advice for a "newer teacher"
Thank you!

    You might also check out the website for Limbitless Solutions (www.limbitless-solutions.org) , a company founded by engineer Albert Manero that uses 3D printing techniques to create prosthetic arms for kids.  
    
    I believe Limbitless is considering developing curriculum based on their technology and approach to helping people.

    We don't have any pictures currently, but we'll make a video with some new examples and try to get it posted this summer! In the mean time, check out our YouTube channel ( http://www.YouTube.com/TeachEngineering ) to see activities that do have videos!
