Description of Activity

EPICS in IEEE at Wichita State University was granted USD 10,000 to build customized ride on cars for use by children with disabilities. With partnership from local non-profit organizations as well as high schools, we were able to build and distribute over 15 such cars to under-privileged children in the community.

Each car was planned and built to meet the exact and varied needs of the child and the specific disability. These cars help not only as a means of movements for these children but also as a way to accelerate their psychological development.

The chapter and the project was featured in the IEEE magazine, The Institute.
