Make-a-thon becomes tradition

On Dec. 1, the Maker Lab partnered with the the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association to host their second annual Make-a-thon, an event that adapts toys for children with disabilities. This year’s event included a website providing instructions on how to adapt the toys, allowing makers to select the toy they wanted to adapt and complete modifications at their own pace with step-by-step instructions.
