Assistive Technology Hackathon at MIT

A Multidisciplinary Hackathon to Help People with Disabilities: The goal of ATHack is to bring awareness to the important field of developing assistive technologies. This program at MIT pairs teams of students with clients in the Boston/Cambridge community who live with a disability. Each client has a problem in mind which they face because of their disability. Over the course of the hackathon, students brainstorm, design, and create prototype solutions for their client.
