8th Graders Build Frozen-Themed Prosthetic Hand for a Little Girl

The Deer Creek Intermediate School in St. Francis, Wisconsin has a robotics team. Its equipment includes a 3D printer. The members learned about Ariah, a little girl in California who was born without most of her right hand. They decided to print an articulated prosthetic hand for her.

But it was no ordinary prosthetic hand. The team members decorated it with colors and images from the Ariah's favorite movie, Frozen. The Huffington Post reports:

With the guidance of their teacher, Peter Graven, they chose color combinations and added snowflakes to the design. To top it all off, they put “Queen Ariah” across the hand.

Later, they got to view an online video of Ariah using her new Frozen hand.
