We have always faced the need for prosthetic equipment but these prosthetics systems could go as high as 80, 000 dollars. The Engineering Automation and Robotics class at Harmony Science Academy Dallas High School found a way to create a prosthetic arm with a budget less than 50 dollars. Their PBL project for the current 9 weeks was about finding a way to create a functional arm-hand. Students needed to do research, designs, design a web page, and create the arm as real as possible with controllable movement. Students solve the problem by using different approaches, some pick materials like wood and a few motors to simulate movement, while others 3D print their design and use Arduino micro controller cards to control movement of the hand. They created a presentation for teachers and Staff to showcase their unique ideas. We were impressed by their presentations and designs since all designs worked perfect.

Field trip to UTSouthwestern Medical Center
Thirty-two students from biomedical pathway class at HSA-Dallas visited a surgical simulation lab in UT Southwestern Medical Center on September 24th. They practiced basic vital sign recognition and emergency room skills on a real, human-sized manikin which had several traits of a real patient: a heart-beat, a pulse and moving eyes. Students also learned suturing and other basic surgical skills. It was a fun and interactive practice for our students, who have brought home priceless experience that will help them in their future medical careers.
