Community Design Challenge 2014
The first stage of Enable Ireland and Dublin Institute of Technology’s (DIT) Community Design Challenge took place in DIT Grangegorman Campus on Friday March 21st. The competition has been generously sponsored by Leckey again this year with the winning design receiving €500. Leckey specialise in designing and manufacturing seating and postural management devices for children with disabilities.
AT users were joined on the day by students from Dublin Institute of Technology and Trinity College Dublin and there was no limit to their creativity with some real “outside the box” solutions to everyday problems. Since meeting and forming teams they have been busy working on their initial concepts in preparation for the final which will be held in Enable Ireland Sandymount on May 23rd.
The video below outlines the experiences of DIT students who took part in previous Community Design Challenges.
