Community Design Challenge 2016 Winner Announced

Enable Ireland, in partnership with DIT, launched their Community Design Challenge in Microsoft, Sandyford last December.

The 2016 competition was open to students nationally and internationally and is sponsored by Leckey, a company which specializes in designing and manufacturing specialist seating and postural management devices for children with disabilities. Students are asked to imagine how to adapt, improve, integrate or augment products to make them fun for the user, and as a consequence help remove the stigma of disability.   

We are delighted to announce that the winners of the 2016 Community Design Challenge are as follows:

The winners were John Larkin, Ross Murray, James  O’Brien  and Aivanan Gedzevicius for thie 'Accessible Bowling App'

Big congratulations to the members of the winning team!
