The NYU Ability Project connects people with disabilities to modern technology and gives NYU students the chance to participate in ongoing projects that deal with the ethics and sensitivities discovered in problem solving. Its research lab is located at the Media and Games Network at Tandon, and its resources include classes, grants and events for students.
Beth Rosenberg’s non-profit Tech Kids Unlimited partners with the lab, and the organization’s work exemplifies the program’s goals and values. The program hosts students with disabilities from ages seven to 19, and it fosters a community of students with different learning techniques.
