It shall be the purpose of the 3D Printed Prosthetics program to promote hands-on, applied learning for students at Wichita State University. Students will be given opportunities to work with, and assist those who may need Assistive Devices, and to provide our patients with assistive solutions. The assistive devices are designed and customized with the assistance and guidance from different mentors and volunteers. All devices will be 3D printed under professional supervision in the Project Engineering Hub at Wichita State University. Social impact engineering is the goal of this organization. Therefore, we are committed to create a product that will positively change the stigma surrounding upper and lower limb devices. This organization will benefit those in need of assistive devices nationwide free of charge, all the way from uninsured patients to ineligible patients for certain devices. In addition, the students who volunteer on the development of these projects will gain essential and applied knowledge. The designs will be open source and uploaded with instructions on how to assemble them, so everyone can print them.

Baja SAE is an international collegiate design competition sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The contest challenges each team to function as a small manufacturing firm whose task is to design, fabricate, market, and race an off-road vehicle prototype that will be evaluated from a variety of manufacturing angles. Each year, various SAE sections host three competitions in which teams from across the nation and around the world bring their vehicles to undergo rigorous testing. The vehicles are judged based on their ability to traverse a harsh, off-road racing course, while not succumbing to the rigors of it. WSU’s Baja SAE Team, Shocker Racing, was started in 1986, and the first year to compete was 1993. Since then, Shocker Racing has competed in two competitions annually, with the exception of 1997.
