HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Students at Hackensack's Bergen County Academies recently collaborated with Enable Community Foundation to make some 3D-printed prosthetic hands.

"After just a few tries, it became easy to use the prosthetic hand," Principal Russ Davis noted on Twitter.

The Enable Community Foundation is an nonprofit whose mission is to enable children and adults to receive free or very low cost experimental upper limb prosthetics. The organization also openly shares its research and designs. It was co-founded by Jon Schull, who founded e-NABLE -- a global network of volunteers who are using their 3D printers, design skills and personal time to create free 3D printed prosthetic hands for those in need, the website notes.

BCA is a free public magnet high school for Bergen County residents. It's located on the Dr. John Grieco Campus, in Hackensack. According to its website, "the school offers seven specialized programs in the areas of mathematics and science, engineering and design, medical science, business and finance, culinary arts and hospitality administration, visual and performing arts, and technology and computer science."
