    Community Service

    ADAPT 2017

    Go Baby Go! And Husky ADAPT
    Thursday, October 19, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

    Oregon State University's Go Baby Go! and University of Washington's Husky ADAPT (Accessible Design and Play Technology) are two organizations with the same goal in mind: fostering an inclusive, sustainable, and interdisciplinary community supporting accessible design and play technology to empower individuals with disabilities.

    By promoting an inclusive community, all children will have greater access to participate in their natural environment through play exploration. Building an inclusive community provides children with opportunities to form memberships across the varied environments in which they play, learn, and thrive.

    At NSC, students and faculty mentors from physical therapy, health sciences, and engineering will perform a live adaptive toy build. OSU Go Baby Go! will turn battery operated ride-on cars into custom adapted ride-on cars and UW Husky ADAPT will adapt smaller electronic toys with push-to-play switches. These adapted toys will be donated directly to children and families. Kids will arrive at 4 PM to play! Come join the fun! Learn more about OSU Go Baby Go and UW Husky ADAPT.
