BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — After living the first seven years of his young life with just one arm, Josiah Reid Clark received his new prosthetic arm Saturday, and he immediately put it to good use riding his bicycle.

Josiah was born with one hand and last week, local high school students taking part in the AT&T Hand in Hand Program through the Western New York STEM Hub built the adaptive device for the seven-year-old boy.

The free summer program helps teach a diverse group of students about digital literacy, and the impact technology can have on the community.
