Description
This is a two week program, Mon-Fri, from 9am-3pm.

MicroMobility and “last mile” transportation is a fancy way of saying bikes, scooters, and electric skateboards, which are becoming more common ways that we move about cities. These vehicles are a great way to reduce our reliance on cars and reduce our carbon footprint.

But with this advancement in personal transportation, the usability is often limited only to able-bodied people. How can students help transform bikes, scooters or electric skateboards for anyone, regardless of ability, to use?

During this two-week course, students will work with mentors to brainstorm new ideas for last-mile transportation solutions to help a person with limited mobility be less reliant on a car to move about their city. Students will work on designing and prototyping personal transportation vehicles that address multiple needs from a user; after multiple iterations, students will then select one prototype to build a full-scale model.

For campers aged between 11-15 (turn 11 by July 13)
