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.

E730: Hands On Engineering: Making Play Accessible for Students with Disabilities in Splash Spring 2022 (Apr. 16, 2022)
**This session is scheduled to be an hour and 50 minutes, however it will most likely only run for around 75 minutes!** In this hands on and interactive course, students can expect to learn how they can reverse engineer battery-operated toys to make these toys more accessible for students with physical disabilities in the local Ithaca community. The session will involve students working in pairs and following a simple step-by-step presentation slideshow to reverse engineer, solder, and modify circuitry of simple battery-operated plush toys. Students interested in hands on learning and STEM are encouraged to attend! No experience needed!
