Last night, Caitlin Barrett represented SICCS and the Wearable Informatics Lab for her outstanding achievements in teaching and research at the NAU Graduate Teaching Awards ceremony. Well done Caitlin.
Happy Earth Day everyone, and a happy March for Science day to you too!
Today marks the start of an 18 month long study on the “Impact of an Independent Mobility Device on Mobility and Development in Special Needs Children.” This study will track 15 children for the next 1.5 years, where we will collect measures of development and use of a Go Baby Go car. Our hypothesis? That use of a Go Baby Go car will accelerate development of children with mobility related special needs. How? By gaining the ability to interact with their world, these children will be able to seek out stimulation, social interaction, and other experiences they would not be able to without such an aide.
Special congratulations are in order for Caitlin Barrett (CS MS Student) on award for travel support to ICAMPAM 2017!
