Superhero Boost Applications NOW OPEN!

What happens if we address a missing limb as a blank canvas rather than a disability? Superhero Boost is the next iteration of our Superhero Cyborgs workshops, where kids will learn new technology - including 3D printing, robotics, and AI - and create their own superpowers via personal wearable devices.

Superhero Boost will take place June 25 - 29, 2018, at Autodesk's Pier 9 shops in San Francisco, CA, from 9am - 3pm each day. Spots are limited. Kids ages 11-17 and with either upper limb difference, or who are a wheelchair user, are invited to apply. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until May 31st.     

Participants will work alongside professional designers and engineers at 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, and will be exposed to the process of designing and bringing an idea to life. Interested participants will be partnered with a professional designer/engineer for further collaboration and development of their projects after the workshop. This workshop is in partnership with  - our amazing sponsors to be announced soon! 

We hope you can join us! This is a video of our last Superhero Cyborgs. The application form is below - scroll down! Please email Kate@KIDmob.org if you have any questions or concerns.    

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until June 10th
