Mass Academy studentsOn Tuesday, June 9, students from the Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science at WPI implemented their assistive technology (AT) projects at the ASPiRE! Program in Worcester. Several groups of students designed and actualized AT tools to be used by individuals with varying abilities. One group developed a scheduling app so that ASPiRE! participants can access their daily activities on an iPad or computer rather than printing out their schedules. Another group designed an application that utilizes the EyeGaze system to facilitate communication. The third group designed and built a custom drum stand that positioned the drum for use by participants using wheelchairs. Everyone was very excited to use the new devices and is looking forward to more Mass Academy projects in the future!
