Limited Capacity seats available

Teaching students to use the design process to answer real world problems is a great way to build empathy. In the Assistive Technology Project, students learned about a variety of disabilities and handicaps as they developed assistive devices that could be utilized by a variety of individuals. The project leads to students empathizing with individuals who are different than them and innovating current technology to meet the need of these individuals. This session will discuss identifying a problem that needs addressed and applying the design process to help students develop a solution.
