This course provides hands-on experience in designing assistive technology using user-centered design. Students will be walked through the design process and be taught technical skills (such as 3D modeling, 3D printing, laser cutting, arduino, electronics and project management) to allow them to prototype a novel solution to a disabilities-related challenge.
The class will be held Thursdays 5-7pm starting with a one hour lecture/workshop followed by a hands-on project section. The class will culminate in a final assistive tech project with EnableTech working with a community member to solve a real challenge they face on a daily basis.
No prior experience or major is required for this course.
