3-D printers are topic for Carmel Valley Library talk

Meghana Reddy, a sophomore at Francis Parker School, will be presenting a talk at the Carmel Valley Library at 3 p.m. March 1 on how she uses 3-D printers to make prosthetic limbs and donates them to patients all over the world.

From medicine to engineering, 3-D printer applications are believed to be the next technological revolution. Meghana will also give a live demonstration on how a simple object can be printed using an inexpensive 3-D printer. Middle and high school students and their parents may find this presentation beneficial.

Meghana is a sophomore at Francis Parker School. She was inspired to create Limbs With Love, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, after she visited orphanages in India and was moved by the plight of children without limbs. Her interest in STEM subjects provided the impetus to learn about 3-D printers and their applications in medicine.

Meghana has been invited by Microsoft to give a keynote address in July on this topic to high school girls in San Diego County. She will also help all interested middle and high school students attending this event to start inexpensive 3-D printer clubs.

The event is sponsored by San Diego Indian-American Society and the Carmel Valley Library. Visit www.limbswithlove.org.
