Marissa Jordan, 14, built a soft robotic hand that uses small air compressors to inflate its silicon fingers. She was in eight-grader when she built the project that was selected for the semifinals of a national competition. She could not say exactly how much time she spent on the project. “It was a lot of evenings with the whole dining room table covered with stuff,” her father Mike Jordan recalled.
