Girl Scouts create prosthetic hand device

Not to be outdone by Boy Scouts who can now earn a robotics badge, a team of Girl Scouts from Iowa has created a prize-winning prosthetic device to help a 3-year-old girl born without fingers on her right hand. The Flying Monkeys robotics team developed the BOB-1 tool as part of the FIRST Lego League (FLL) competition, an international kids’ robotics program.

    Don’t forget that the Flying Monkeys are also some of the youngest X-prize winners. They will be receiving a $20,000 grant as part of the Global Innovation Award to help them patent the BOB-1 device.
