For students interested in engineering and physiology, this articulated hand tutorial we found over at Instructables is sure to be a hit! From signing to picking up an object, the model hand demonstrates how the various parts of a human hand - including the skeletal structure and muscular system - work together to complete various tasks. This project is quite labor intensive and requires the use of power tools as well as a knowledgeable and competent carpenter for completion. However, the results are well worth the work!

To check out the full tutorial and great pictures of the articulated hand at work, be sure to visit Instructables!
