We're pleased to announce that the next iteration of Superhero Cyborgs will be called Superhero Boost, and will take place in June 2018 in San Francisco, back at Pier 9! More info on the upcoming Superhero Boost here.
Superhero Cyborgs 2.0
What happens if we address a missing limb as a blank canvas rather than a disability? Kids are some of the most creative folks around. At Superhero Cyborgs 2.0, kids will create their own superpowers via personal wearable devices - a potential alternative to their upper limb prosthetic.
Superhero Cyborgs 2.0 took place January 15 - 19, 2016, at Autodesk's Pier 9 shops in San Francisco, CA, from 9am - 3pm each day. Spots are limited. Kids ages 11-15 and with upper limb difference are invited to apply. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until spots fill up!
Participants will work alongside professional designers and engineers in Autodesk's state-of-the-art shops to envision and prototype their own personal wearable devices. Participants will learn about 3D modeling and digital fabrication, such as 3D printing, and will be exposed to the process of designing and bringing an idea into the world. Participants may be partnered with a professional designer/engineer for further collaboration and development of their projects after the workshop. This workshop is generously being sponsored by Autodesk.
We hope you can join us! This is a video of one of last year's projects. The application form is below. Please email Kate@KIDmob.org if you have any questions or concerns.
