CCS Senior Capstone Engineering is a class for seniors who have an interest in interacting with the special needs community while applying the engineering design process. Three groups were assigned clients at Reach Unlimited. Their goal is to impact their client’s life by building objects that will allow their clients to be able to interact with their friends and be involved in their everyday classes. CCS students took a visit to Reach Unlimited to meet their clients and understand the needs of each client.
The first client, who is nonverbal, would love to be able to participate and communicate with his classmates. The second client is wheelchair bound but loves to touch sensory items. The last need is a heavy duty light table so that clients can trace their art work to create products to sell in their gift shop. These three needs will turn in to projects that the Senior Capstone Engineering class will work on for the spring semester.
