Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School’s STREAM Club students have been applying the knowledge and skills learned in their classroom curriculum to assist others with service-based projects designed to meet the needs of their local community. With the use of 3D printing, the students at BMCHS have been designing, modifying, and developing new ways to fulfill their God-given purpose of serving others with custom-designed, 3D-printed products for specific community needs. The STREAM Club has been working on 2 major service projects for our community. The first, working with e-Nable, encompasses printing prosthetic hands for children with limited hand mobility. The second project, working with Blue Pearl Emergency Veterinary Hospital, focuses on printing custom designs that have been specially requested by their surgeons.
