E-Nable program expands to Honduras

July 31, 2017

The e-Nable program at Vertus High School–a charter school for young men on Humboldt Street–will design mechanical hands for people in Honduras on Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the school’s maker space, officials said.

The program develops and delivers free mechanical hands and related devices to those in need around the world. It is in its third year.

Vertus students are paid to work 15 hours in the program under the direction of Jon Schull and Skip Meetze, officials said. This year’s summer program has 16 students and runs through August.

Rochester e-Nable Labs moved its home to Vertus High School earlier this year, after two years at Rochester Institute of Technology, officials said.
