Children with cerebral palsy and other motor impairments face difficulties exploring the world due to reduced mobility. Exploration is essential to learning about the world and helps in their learning and development.

The GoBabyGo! project converts battery-powered ride-on cars into rehabilitative devices for children with special needs, allowing them to explore the world around them on their own and participate in interactive play with other children!

As a tech team member, you will be adapting commercially available, off-the-shelf ride-on toy cars into easy-to-operate cars that help children who cannot walk on their own. You will work closely with occupational and physiotherapists from our beneficiary organisations, to understand the children’s needs so as to modify the cars to suit their abilities.

Roles and responsibilities

  • Work alongside 4 to 5 fellow volunteer engineers on the car modifications, either in collaboration or on parallel workstreams and reporting to team manager
  • Produce project deliverables that are safe, of good quality and applicable to the end users’ needs

Commitment level
The project is expected to run from February to August 2018 (6 months).

A volunteer team member should expect to spend 3-5 hours each week. These hours comprise of individual and team level design & construction work, as well as sessions to engage our partner VWOs and test or validate some of the ideas.

Envelope 2015

Envelope 2015, held in August of 2015, was a seminar event organised by the Engineering Good Student Chapter. Envelope exposed and engaged more than a hundred students to how organizations in Singapore use sustainable and appropriate solutions to help various communities, be it in Singapore or overseas. Guest speakers included speakers from World Toilet Organization, Operation Hope Foundation, Ground Up Initiative, NUS Energy Office and many more!

The first half of Envelope consisted of a series of talks by our invited guest speakers, where they introduced Humanitarian Engineering as it is done in its many different forms, showcasing the many possibilities for students to engage in Humanitarian Engineering as it best suits them. In the second half of Envelope, students could chose to more directly engage with speakers they were more interested in by joining their respective short workshops.

Project Make-Possible with IES-NUS

Project Make Possible was an event to help bridge the current gap between engineers and disadvantaged communities. Project Make-Possible began with a Humanitarian Engineering talk, where participants were introduced to the concept of Humanitarian Engineering, followed by a Makerthon.

The Makerthon was made possible through collaboration with Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) Labs and the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD). Over a week, 10 teams of 4 participants went to SPD to learn more about the problems faced by the physically disabled and develop prototypes to tackle problems identified for a mini-competition. The winners were awarded a total seed funding of $3000 with the option of continuing their work with SPD.
