Engineering Talent Awards
We are lucky enough to have been shortlisted at the Engineering Talent Awards for the Best Engineering Society of the Year 2020.
We are over the moon and are very grateful to be shortlisted. Thank you to everyone who has been part of Handprints over the years to help us get here.
The myoelectrics team at Handprints e-NABLE Scotland were invited along to speak at the Let's Talk About [X] conference at the University of Glasgow. This is an annual undergraduate multidisciplinary conference which aims to bring students, staff and researchers from different fields to come together and discuss outstanding research conducted by the students.
Our media team have been busy designing and ordering t-shirts for the entire Handprints e-NABLE Scotland group. They arrived recently and will be brilliant to wear on school visits and events we are invited to. They will also help us promote our organisation around the University of Glasgow campus. Here's two of our committee members modelling the new t-shirts.
We were recently invited back to Netherlee Primary School to talk to the students about what we do. We presented to around 90 pupils on Biomedical Engineering and introduced them to the world of prosthetics.
Solidworks CAD Workshops
We have recently been running a couple of CAD workshops at our university to help develop peoples interest in CAD skills. These workshops are run by our very own 3D printing expert Joe and were a huge success.
Lets Talk About [X] Conference
13 year old Fatima from Pakistan sadly lost her hand in an accident a little over a year ago. Handprints e-NABLE Scotland were able to help her by using a cast of her arm to create a 3D printed prosthetic. This mechanical hand allows her to carry out simple everyday tasks that she was unable to before. Making little differences.
Recently our team has been taking part in Curiosity Live hosted by the Glasgow Science Centre. This event was all about inspiring children and their families by introducing them to what we do.
We took along some of our prosthetics as well as other 3D printed goodies for the families to see.
We present for school children all over the Glasgow area, teaching the little ones about prosthetics, what we do and why they should become an engineer.
