Join us for a sneak peek at prototype designs for assistive clothing. Celebrate the collaborative work between engineers, occupational therapists, and designers who participated in an innovative summer program at MIT called Open Style Lab. After ten weeks of working closely with each other and a client with disabilities, teams will share their experiences, processes, and designs. Check out creations that are both fashionable and functional!

How it works: Each Saturday, two groups will showcase their designs (with designs set up by noon and remaining until 2:30 pm). At 12:30 pm, a representative from each group will speak on the stage and answer any questions.
