Assistive Devices for Adults and Children with Disabilities

Open to ALL RICE undergraduate and graduate students!!


The INNOVATE Design-a-Thon is an engineering design competition similar to the traditional code-based hackathon. Teams of 3-5 students will compete to design, prototype and present the best device in a number of categories to solve a real world problem in disabilities. Each student team will have the duration of the Design-a-Thon and the physical and human resources of the OEDK to develop their solution over the course of the weekend.

This year's focus will be developing assistive devices for adults and children with disabilities.
