Students compete, create products that make life easier for people with disabilities
There are people who simply love to figure things out, create something new and develop technology to support it.
Tech lovers young and old will want to take part in a free event this weekend – the ADEC Technology Challenge 2.0.
It is taking place on Saturday at the Northern Indiana Event Center from 9 a.m. until noon. There are 12 finalist teams from Notre Dame, Northridge High School, Penn High School, Marian High School and South Bend Memorial High School who all invented products to make life easier for people with disabilities. They will be competing for cash prizes, 3D printers and printer kits.
The Chris Gibson People’s Choice Award will go to the project voted “best” by spectators at the challenge. Anyone who attends this free event and votes for the People’s Choice Award will be eligible to win a door prize.
Last year's winning prize was the Go Grip, which is in production and will be for sale.
ADEC Inc. is a charitable organization, based in Bristol that advocates for and serves people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties.
