Do you think your ideas could change lives? Build your skills as an engineer while thinking of ways help kids in hospitals learn, play, and create. We think the best ideas for young users will come from young engineers. Participants will use the engineering design process to create prototypes and a bank of ideas that could help others make the most of their hospital stay.

Here is a look at how our 2016 Senior Design Team tackled Designing with Empathy for patients at Children’s Hospital.
