Before Connor Hart, a sophomore mechanical engineering student at Cedarville University, ever stepped foot on campus, he was already making a huge difference in the lives of others. Through the Hands of Hope Foundation, a nonprofit Connor started, children with a limb difference are able to receive a 3-D printed prosthetic.

But Connor’s servant heart didn’t stop there. With the coronavirus pandemic, Connor switched from prosthetics to 3-D printed masks for healthcare workers. He has already created and sent masks to nursing homes and medical professionals.

Connor’s love of using his engineering abilities to serve others comes from a deep conviction given to him by God when he was on a missions trip as a teenager. That faith-changing experience is continuing to make a difference in his life and in the lives of others.

The Hands of Hope Foundation got its name from the first recipient of a hand prosthetic, Hope McGill.

Each of Connor’s masks can be sanitized and reused, meaning one mask could last for months if cared for properly.

One-line descriptor: Connor Hart has a 3-D heart of service.
