Jack is a five-year-old student at the Lewis Center KinderCare in Ohio. According to Center Director Darcie Schofeld, he’s little boy who dreams of becoming a baseball player. Jack (and his classmates) barely notice the fact that one of his hands isn’t quite like the other. Now though, his hand definitely catches your eye thanks to a prosthetic built on a 3D printer by a group of engineering students.

Learn more about Jack’s story and watch him receive his “Iron Man hand” during a special presentation at his center.
