About this event

Create accessible technology with and for people with disabilities. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, NYU's ABILITY Lab is hosting a hackathon focused on digital and wearable solutions for accessibility.

Participants will receive the technology challenge Saturday morning. Over the course of the weekend you will meet four individuals with disabilities to discuss some of the issues they face day to day. Interdisciplinary teams will form to build functioning prototypes to be judged by an expert panel. All participants will be fueled with food, tech and fabrication support all weekend (including night). Breakout sessions with industry leaders, technologists, occupational therapists, and individuals with disabilities will take place throughout the weekend.

Winners will compete for prizes totaling $10,000, and will have the opportunity to continue their work as part of a larger challenge.
