Code Community: An Assistive Technology Intensive




Develop basic computer programming and electronic hardware literacy in pursuit of enriching the lives of children with disabilities and medically complex needs.

In small teams, students will work in collaboration with children and therapists from a local pediatric center to design, ideate, and present initial iterations and prototypes of assistive technology devices for the center. In courses with faculty, students will learn not only fundamental programming and hardware skills, but also project-planning by taking a design challenge from conception to prototype in just three weeks. Students should be passionate about human-centered, collaborative design and learning, as well as hold a strong desire to explore the possibilities and limitations of technology.

We welcome students entering the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades the following fall. Commuter students must be age 14 or older at the start of the program. Residential students must be age 15 or older at the start of the program.

Full details on the 2019 program will be posted to this site by early November, 2018. Check back soon!
