STEM Making for all: including people with a disability

Primary supervisor

Kirsten Ellis


Research area

Inclusive Technology

People with disabilities are excluded from the assistive technology creation process because the methods and tools that are used are inaccessible. This leads to missed opportunities to create more accessible technologies for everyone including assistive technologies. This project will engage people with disabilities in the technology creation process at many levels, from engagement activities, input into designs and creation of technology and the facilitation of independent making of assistive technologies. The project will create new tools, activities and methods to create more accessible making opportunities for people with disabilities.
