Ignacio student's robotic hand up for national award

Marissa Jordan plans to use robot to make a glove for the disabled
Marissa Jordan, 14, built a soft robotic hand that uses small air compressors to inflate the silicon fingers.
Marissa Jordan, 14, built a soft robotic hand that uses small air compressors to inflate its silicon fingers. She was in eight-grader when she built the project that was selected for the semifinals of a national competition. She could not say exactly how much time she spent on the project. "It was a lot of evenings with the whole dining room table covered with stuff," her father Mike Jordan recalled.

Marissa Jordan, 14, built a soft robotic hand for the regional science fair in the spring. She used a 3-D printer to create the mold that she later used to cast the fingers of the hand.
