BOOST by Born Just Right Design Night

April 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Born Just Right builds creative solutions that help kids with disabilities live a more enjoyable life, and gives kids design and STEM knowledge to empower them to create their own solutions. BOOST by Born Just Right is changing how kids can learn and develop in the world of inclusive design.

The closing showcase and reception of a 2-day inclusive design workshop is open to the public! Come Sunday evening to meet the student makers, check out their design concepts, chat with creative students, learn more about inclusive design, and enjoy refreshments!

Children with disabilities have a rich opportunity to use their differences to learn to design for their bodies in ways an able bodied person could never imagine. Children 10+ have been invited to join a 2 day mini workshop at the Microcoft Garage in Cambridge. Interested in the full two-day workshop? Learn more here

Co-founders Jen Lee Reeves and 13-year-old Jordan Reeves and program director Kate Ganim introduce the concept of teaching kids how to develop designs and concepts that build off of each child’s differences. The curriculum focuses on helping each kid identify a challenge or a concept through design thinking and teaching them how to develop and build those concepts into reality. Ganim will also share how Born Just Right has developed a hands-on workshop into a classroom curriculum to teach all students personal design and client-based design.

Sunday Evening Reception:
Cost: Free. Online registration required – free tickets here.
