Introducing BOOST by Born Just Right. If you don't have a hand, what could it be? Born Just Right invites kids to celebrate the bodies they're in, and reframe their disability as a way to design something no one else can build. What if we lived in a world where disability and assistive devices are met with, "WOAH THAT'S SO COOL! I WISH I HAD ONE OF THOSE!!!"? We'd like to find out.
We want kids to leave our workshops with a new perspective, technical skills, confidence in the design process and their ability to make, connection with kids who have a similar condition, relationships with design and engineering professionals, AND a super cool body mod.
The curriculum started in 2014 as a project of Born Just Right's partner, KIDmob, the mobile kid-integrated design firm. It is led by Kate Ganim - trained in architecture - and has been made possible by the time and support of many incredible individuals and organizations. Special thanks to our sponsors and partners, listed below!
