Live From Surgery: 3D Printed Prosthetics

Peek inside the operating room! Liberty Science Center's Live From Surgery program offers viewers a unique opportunity to watch real surgeries and envision a career in the medical field.

Join the Live From Surgery Team for a presentation on how 3D printed prosthetics are changing the face of medicine! In this video, viewers will explore how consumer 3D printing is leading to an even bigger revolution: “DIY” assistive devices that can be printed by virtually anyone, anywhere.

Viewers can choose to work alongside our educator and make their own prototype of a 3D printed prosthetic! For those participating, please have paper (construction or printer), yarn or string, 2-3 straws, a pencil, scissors, and tape.
