Adaptive Device Design

After reading about how engineering has made adaptive devices possible for people with disabilities, pupils work in groups to discuss different devices to determine whether or not they are adaptive. They also disassemble a pair of eyeglasses in order to analyze the materials and design. This is a hands-on critical-thinking activity that you can use in a STEM or engineering unit.
