No two design problems are the same in assistive technology, and there's an infinite amount of work to be done in the field.

This  was one thing high school students said they learned Saturday while building a prototype of a design challenge at the Utah Assistive Technology Lab on the Utah State University campus.

The students, who were from Wasatch Front high schools, were participating in a study being conducted by USU's Dr. Amy Alexander Wilson from the College of Education, and Dr. Dan Householder from USU's engineering college. The study is part of a grant received from the National Science Foundation.
