ACCESSIBLE TOY BUILD
For children with limited fine motor skills, even playing with toys can be a challenge. In 2022, Team 1732 started a new initiative to purchase and adapt common electronic toys for use by children with special needs in support of the "Inclusive Play: Toys for All'' program created through a partnership between Penfield Children's Center, Marquette University’s Opus College of Engineering and its Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC), and Kohl’s Building Blocks.
Through the Team’s ongoing relationship with Penfield Children’s Center and involvement with the Inclusive Play initiative, the Team is further aware of the importance and is committed to including people of all ability levels in Team 1732’s Community Outreach programs.
