FIRST Robotics Competition Team Creates Prosthetic Hand

For this first time in his life, Pete Peeks was able to use both hands to hang Christmas lights outside his house this year - thanks to the help of FIRST Robotics Competition Team 8080: Sequoyah Robotics of Canton, Georgia.

Working with E-Nable, a global organization of volunteers that use their 3D printers to make prosthetic upper limb devices for people in need at no cost to the clients, the 25-member team set out as FIRST GAME CHANGERS to improve not only Pete's, but several others' quality of life.
