Hacking for Mobility with Go Baby Go

November 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free - $20.00
3 hour virtual coding program for girls and boys (4-8th grade) with Code.org’s App Lab and Zoom.

Go Baby Go was founded by Professor Cole Galloway as part of a research project at the University of Delaware.

The modified toy cars give children with mobility disabilities a chance to play and socialize with their peers more easily. Past research has shown that independent mobility is linked to cognitive, social, motor, language and other developmental benefits in young children. Being pushed in a stroller or being carried from one place to another is fundamentally different from having active control over one’s own exploration, which is where the developmental gains are seen.

Join Random Hacks of Kindness Junior and CCSU Professor Michele Dischino to create apps that address the mobility issues for young children with mobility disabilities. Experience first hand how you can use technology to create positive change.
