Launch of Community Design Challenge 2013
Enable Ireland, in partnership with DIT launched their Community Design Challenge in Microsoft on Monday, December 3rd. This year's competition is open to all students nationally and internationally and is sponsored by Leckey, a company which specialises in designing and manufacturing specialist seating and postural management devices for children with disabilities.
Leckey is asking you to imagine how you could adapt, improve, integrate or augment our products to make them fun for the user, and as a consequence help remove the stigma of disability. Keeping in mind our mission and vision create a design, picture, code, prototype or description of a new product Leckey could design. There's no limit to your creativity! You may extend the concept to anything you think might please the target group! Prize for the winning concept is €500.
