The Go baby go project is great. I love how the different classes come together to create the project for the disabled children. The OP students also had outstanding input on the body mechanic, the safety of the child as they are seated in the cars and the arm and head movement for each child. The parents of these children also desire great honor, given their child a great advantage by intering this program, it looks like it maybe free of charge for the families. I love giving back to my community and I would also love to be a Teacher in an invironment like these videos. These students are our future. I noticed 3D printing was making some of the tools to be placed on the cars. One group of students used the childs name so that makes it more personalible and sincere.
I like how they all came together to talk about how to make the ride comfortable for the children. They made sure it was tailored to meet there specific needs. There goal was to make sure the children was not just in a ride but had the support they needed from head to toe.
The "Go Baby Go" program in schools is an excellent program in schools to teach students with hands on learning. This project gets the students involved in the real world with people who have disabilities by teaching them that with the right resources all students have the ability to learn. It teaches teamwork, strengthens communication skills, and helps with a technical skill students can use for a lifetime. Imagine the sense of pride a student who worked on this team has when they see their products going to students to make their unique learning environment more comfortable and more fun.
Amazing example of this class’s involvement in the community by collaborating with a children’s hospital or rehabilitation center to help design buggies for children with special needs. Another awesome thing about this project is that it incorporates four different programs or subjects; apart from engineering and mechanics they also use therapeutic services class for input on building the seats and controls, extra cushion and/or special harnesses for the children that will be using the buggies. All the students were genuinely interested and involved and did a great job.
“Go Baby Go Project” gives the students a project to recreate cars for children with disabilities, the students are developing cognitive motor skills to repurpose cars for those children. Having a purpose behind the projects expresses the student’s creativity to be driven to succeed to impact the lives of others. Projects with non-profits brings the community together to be able to develop create critical thinking skills to be able to modify the car for the safety of the disabled child. Sharing these experiences with students gives them a purpose, while being able to support and impact others lives in a positive way.
