    ADAPT 2017  

    Go Baby Go! Live Build
    Thursday, October 11, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

    Go Baby Go! provides mobility (and play!) to very young children in the form of adapted toy ride-on cars. Founded by the University of Delaware, the program has already spread to numerous locations across the U.S. and internationally.
    At NSC, faculty and students from the Technology and Engineering Education department of Central Connecticut State University will be working closely with volunteer PTs and PTAs to adapt motorized ride-on cars and donate them directly to children and families. Detailed information about the Go Baby Go! program and ways to get involved will be available, and all conference attendees are encouraged to stop by to see the program in action.
