Shriya, Clarissa and Sahil from Poolesville High School are partnering with ECHO for the SourceAmerica Design Challenge to engineer something to assist people with disabilities.

The SourceAmerica Design Challenge is a national engineering competition in which participants invent workplace technologies for people with disabilities. A student team from Poolesville High School collaborated with ECHO to invent a device that enhances productivity.

Shriya, Clarissa and Sahil  created custom-made assistive technology that improves our work environment at the Oath campus. The innovation they came up with enhances employment options and increases efficiency and productivity in this particular work environment. It is having a significant impact on the workplace!
