Outreach

Elementary school girls surround a large demo-filled table during a visit to the Ability and Innovation Lab.We love to share our work with students, teachers, and other community members who are interested in the ultimate machine and engineering. The human body is incredibly complex and we need more creative minds from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about addressing the challenges when things go wrong with the ultimate machine. We host a variety of outreach events each year to inspire and educate others about these challenges and how they can get involved.

Darrin shows a group of fourth graders the basics of human motion analysis.

 

Our lab participates in UW’s Discovery Days, MESA Days, and Expanding Your Horizons each spring. We hope to see you at some of these events!
