E852: Rewiring Plush Toys with Big Red APDI! in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 11, 2023)
We will be talking about the importance of inclusive play and show that through rewiring plush toys. We will teach kids how to add an adapted button to a plush toy and the difference it makes in our community. We will be going over skills such as soldering and engineering skills that will be important in the future. Please sign up and come have fun with us to help create a better community through your newfound engineering skills.

E841: Engineering and Circuitry Applications: Making Toys More Accessible in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 29, 2023)
Join Cornell’s Big Red Adaptive Play and Design Initiative (Big Red APDI) to learn more about engineering processes and circuitry! We will be working together to form small circuits made from batteries and wires. Additionally, we will demonstrate how much circuitry can be applied to other engineering disciplines. In particular, the Big Red APDI team is focused on reverse engineering toys to make them more accessible to students with physical disabilities in the Ithaca community.
