WPI student presention

On Monday, May 2, 2016, student researchers from the Worcester Community Project Center (WCPC) at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) presented their final Assistive Technology (AT) Database Project presentation to Seven Hills Foundation and other community members. Presentations were also given by researchers from Abbey's House, Habitat for Humanity, Worcester Art Museum, and the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.  Seven Hills is grateful to WCPC and the students at WPI for developing such a thoughtful and creative AT database.  Seven Hills plans to implement the database that will be utilized by staff in developing low-tech AT solutions for the individuals supported through our programs for adults and children with disabilities.
