CHALLENGE
SourceAmerica Design Challenge is a national level engineering competition (USA) to design workplace technology for people with disabilities. Irrespective of educational skills, individuals with disability are at a severe disadvantage while applying for employment. Even simple tasks such as using a phone or computer are difficult, and the current products available in the market are either too expensive or too inconvenient.
