Instructions on how to Intern
When COVID-19 struck, our priority was producing as much PPE as possible. In the end, our interns across the country donated over 100 reusable face masks. Now that the mass shortage has passed, we have shifted our focus to printing prosthetics. Our internship program is now world wide, as we have interns ranging from California to India learning how to fabricate and assemble 3D prosthetics. The internship program includes personal mentorship and lessons from the CEO and staff through text and Face Time/Skype/Zoom. If you are interested in learning how to fabricate and assemble prosthetics, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
