Faculty, students and members of the public who are interested in new technology and disabilities are invited to join us, April 17th from 6pm-9pm for an open house event. The staff and students at the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA) at Georgia Tech will show off their latest research and design projects on accessible education, enabling environments, accessible workplaces and rehabilitation engineering. The Open House will feature cutting-edge research on design and technology to promote the health, active lifestyles, and societal participation of people of all ages and abilities. Find out about our 3-D virtual learning environments utilizing creative avatars, the accessible aquarium project, social networking to help students with disabilities succeed in STEM programs, universal design projects at Atlanta airport, accessible voting systems, innovations in wheeled mobility, and new products to enhance the independence of individuals at home and work.

That same night, our neighbors across 10th St., the Aware Home and Ellen Do’s Happy Home class and those across Hemphill, the Wireless RERC, will also be having open houses, so please visit us on the NW corner of Tech’s campus across from Rocky Mt. for this multi-location, inter-laboratory Über Event.
