Competition for Students to Collaborate with Persons with Disabilities to Create Assistive Technology

The SourceAmerica IDEATE competition (formerly called the SourceAmerica Design Challenge) invites high school and college engineering students from across the country to innovate ways to improve workplace inclusion and opportunities for people with disabilities. To participate in IDEATE 2022, student teams collaborate with a person with a disability in their community, evaluate a need, and develop an innovative solution that will make a real difference. Judging is based on demonstrable results, not technological sophistication. SourceAmerica will offer internship opportunities to the team(s) whose competition entry represents the highest potential for workplace improvement and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Up to five interns will be selected and compensated at $15 per hour for an estimated 20 hours per week over a 16-week period ($4,800 maximum). No travel will be required for participation in the internship. Interns will be assigned to an experienced engineering professional who will manage the program and provide training and mentorship. Interns will work to develop their IDEATE Competition entry with the help of SourceAmerica’s Productivity Engineering Team.

Deadline: Registration is open. Finals event will take place in April 2022.
