This past September, a group of NYU OT students participated at the World Maker Faire New York 2015. Working with eNable, an organization of volunteers dedicated to the evolution and distribution of prosthetic hands for children in need, the students demonstrated and explained the prosthetic hands on a 3D model. The Maker Faire is a “festival of inventions, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.”
The following students volunteered at the 2015 Maker Faire in New York:
Student game leaders: MarieJoie Tabriri, Matt Welt, Emma Petkofsky, Lindsay Maron, and Val Grinman
2nd year volunteers: Mike Maish, Nylah Lummer, Amy Aragon
1st year volunteers: Danielle Smith and Jessie Warren
Thank you to our volunteers for representing NYU OT at the Maker Faire!
