      hackABILITY Info Session - Sheridan College

      On Thursday, September 21st, RIC Centre will be hosting the 2nd hackABILITY info session at Sheridan College. What is it? hackABILITY will raise awareness about emerging technology opportunities in the area of assistive technology, as well as support collaboration between educational institutions and established businesses. hackABILITY will facilitate the rapid prototyping of devices that may be considered for further development and commercialization. How does it work? hackABILITY will bring together teams to create solutions for defined assistive/adaptive needs in the community. hackABILITY teams will consist of at least 4 people including a person with a disability or a caregiver, plus members with experience in design, coding, and engineering. Solutions will be assessed based on innovation, scalability and affordability criteria. When is it? Think you have a solution that will take the "dis" out of "disability"?Team applications are open now!
