Geeks for Kids Build Event | LEARN Science and Math Club
November 4 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pmFree
Help our team assemble up to eight cars and other assistive devices for kids with movement limitations. No tech skills are necessary for many tasks. Physical therapists check our designs to make sure they suit each child’s specific needs. Seamstresses help us cut out and sew seat cushions and make seat belts. Folks from all walks of life help with tasks like wrapping hard, plastic wheels with rubber tread, pulling LED lights through plastic tubing, installing license plates and cushions, and more. There are lots of jobs for our technically-minded folks, too. The techies can pitch in and help our Design Team build drive systems that make it possible for kids to drive using only their hands, or their feet, or just with a flick of the finger or the press of a cheek. They also help us assemble other assistive devices. They create wiring harnesses, modify steering assemblies and prepare safety systems for installation. There is lots of work for every skill set and interest, and no one has to “go it alone.” One of our experienced team leaders supports every team.
