University students design accessible workplace solutions

sorting table
Tuesday, April 25, 2017

As part of the EPICS in IEEE program, students at Clarkson University developed a solution to enhance the productivity of workers with disabilities at their local Arc chapter.The students designed a counting table to assist workers in their efforts to sort and count recyclables such as glass, aluminum, and plastic. The table reduced the need to double sort the materials and also enabled counts of the materials to be calculated and printed.  EPICS in IEEE empowers students to work with local service organizations to apply technical knowledge to implement solutions for a community’s unique challenges.To learn more about EPICS in IEEE or to donate to other great projects like this, please visit the EPICS in IEEE website at www.epicsinieee.org
