Distinguished Finalist

Ian Bormett

Stoughton, Wisconsin

Ian Bormett, 17, of Stoughton, Wis., a senior at Stoughton High School, worked for two months to design and build a 3D-printed prosthetic arm, benefiting a young boy in his community who was born without a hand and won’t be fitted for a long-term prosthetic until he’s done growing. Ian worked with the boy to custom design the arm; he also interned at a research institute over the summer where he helped with a program that prints prosthetic arms for other children and adults.
