Hear about the theory behind Design Thinking and have a chance to participate in a hands-on event. Then see some of the latest designs and meet the students behind them.

Although our public buildings and spaces have been required to “reasonably accommodate” individuals with disabilities since the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, many buildings are barely ADA-compliant, rather than ADA-friendly. For example, pushbuttons aides on heavy external building doors are often far too high for people with limited upper body mobility to operate from a wheelchair. Human-Centered Design is being used at the University of New Mexico to partner our engineering students with community members who know what the flaws are with our current assistive aides. Together, they are building creative designs that are tailor-made to adapt the environment to the user.

 At this event, you’ll hear a bit about the theory behind Design Thinking, and you’ll have a chance to participate in a hands-on event. Then you’ll see some of the latest designs, and meet the students behind them.
