Join us April 14, 2015 5pm-8:30pm for the Healthy Environments and Active LifeStyles 2015 Open House featuring student projects and ongoing research from multiple organizations at Georgia Tech.

Conducting research studies to understand the needs and preferences of older adults, the HomeLab utilizes a 50 and older participant population to help evaluate research projects and industry products.

Whether a class project or a competition entry, student teams work hard to design and prototype their projects.

The Wireless Rehabilitation and Engineering Research Center (RERC) often conduct surveys to understand how people living with disability are using technologies to assist in their daily lives.

See demos and learn more about the Easy as Pi Youth Code (Youth Code) pilot project, part of Georgia Tech’s Center for Advanced Communications Policy (CACP) collaboration with BCS -The Chartered Institute for IT, Southeast Regional Group (SERG)
