UC Berkeley's EnableTech project seeks to connect engineering students to people with disabilities to work on assistive technologies and their fall semester's work will be unveiled to the public on Thurs., Nov. 30 from 6-8 p.m.
Project teams will be exhibiting and demonstrating the assistive technology projects developed over the course of the Fall 2017 semester. Each team works with a "need-knower," someone who either has a disability or are very familiar with one, to plan, develop, and prototype a device that seeks to alleviate a challenge they face. Teams create solutions that can be replicated at costs far below similar solutions on the medical devices market, improving the lives of many people.
The results will be showcased at UC Berkeley Bechtel Engineering Center's Garbarini Lounge. You may obtain your free ticket HERE.
