“My GCSP project title was Adaptive Design Study at Olin College. I worked with the Adaptive Design Association (a non-profit based in New York City) and the Perkins School for the Blind Assistive Devices Center to design custom adaptive devices for children with disabilities. I was able to custom make furniture that stood alone or adapted to the existing environment, enabling children to interact in places not previously accessible. I documented all my discoveries and pursuits on a web blog, sharing useful techniques that may be replicated anywhere! This GCSP project affirmed for me that engineering starts and ends with people, and inspired me to continue building for those around me.”
