A group of people makes bionic arms. The arms are 3D printed. The people give the arms to children.

One boy doesn’t have two complete arms. One of his arms is OK. The other one is short. It ends with his elbow. The group gives the boy a bionic arm. It looks like Iron Man’s arm. Who gives the boy the arm? Iron Man, of course!

Robert Downy Jr is an actor. He plays Iron Man. He is the boy’s idol.

Difficult words: bionic (mechanical; made by people), 3D printed (made by a special machine, a 3D printer), idol (a famous person that you like and respect).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
