It was one of the teachers of the school’s engineering program who suggested that their classmates could help him by developing a robotic hand.

15-year-old Tennessee boy Sergio Peralta now has a robotic hand, thanks to his classmates. A group of high school students designed a robotic hand for their newcomer.

“In the first days of school, I honestly felt like hiding my hand,” he said to CBS News.


As reported by CBS News, Sergio Peralta was born with an incompletely formed right hand. He developed writing skills with his left hand. He claimed he could manage practically all other jobs by developing strategies for everyday activities like carrying a water bottle from class to class.
