Limited Capacity seats available

Due to the absurd price of assistive technology and the lack of insurance coverage, families with children in need of assistive technology often cannot afford it and must get it through different means. In some cases, those families ask STEM students to create them using 3D printers along with other technology. Penn Robotics started an assistive technology initiative called Mission to Engineer to address this unique issue. This presentation will focus on what exactly Mission to Engineer is, how making assistive technology in the class room can benefit a family as well as students in the classroom, and how a teacher can get started on a project like this.
