A time to eat, drink, & talk about Science! – 7th year of Science on Tap

Although our public buildings and spaces have been required to “reasonably accommodate” individuals with disabilities since the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, many buildings are barely ADA-compliant, rather than ADA-friendly. For example, push button aides on heavy external building doors are often far too high for people with limited upper body mobility to operate from a wheelchair. Human-Centered Design is being used at the University of New Mexico to partner our engineering students with community members who know what the flaws are with our current assistive aides. Together, they are building creative designs that are tailor-maid to adapt the environment to the user.

At this event, you’ll hear a bit about the theory behind Design Thinking, and you’ll have a chance to participate in a hands-on event. Then you’ll see some of the latest designs and meet the students behind them.

Discussions are free. Food and drink are available for purchase at the event.

Thanks to the continued support of UNM, Explora and the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History
