#ATIAMakerDay 2018 was a huge hit!

This year, ATMakers.org was thrilled to host the first annual ATIA Maker Day at the ATIA Annual Conference!

STEM Students and Makers from around the country shared their experiences working with AT Users as well as the amazing technology and skills they bring to bear. ATIA attendees learned to solder, adapt toys, and make custom AT solutions using InstaMorph and corrugated plastic. Everyone had a fantastic time and the exhibit hall was filled with incredible energy!

Our FRC Teams were amazing:

  • Team 135 – Penn Robotics traveled all the way from South Bend, Indiana to spend the week attending and even presenting at the international conference
  • Roaring Riptide – Team 4118 brought their entire crew from Gainesville, leaving at 4:30am in the middle of their build season to teach folks to build 12V Go Baby Go cars & adapt toys
  • GRA-V – Team 5816 from Orange County is more local, but they brought all the equipment and expertise to teach soldering, 3D Printing and more!

Two great clubs from the University of Florida came and shared their passion for making solutions to help AT Users:

In addition, we couldn’t have made this happen without the immense amount of work of these fabulous individuals!

Finally, the event would never have happened without the vision of ATIA’s CEO David Dikter and the ridiculous amount of work by Caroline Van Howe and Eric Carson who coordinated the entire event.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all!
