Activities

Founded in 2015 by a small group of students wanting to make a difference in the lives of children and teens with upper-limb differences, GRiP is dedicated to serving our local communities through the work that we do outside of school. GRiP’s mission is to use the skills that we have gained through our classroom work and experiences to make a difference in the lives of others. We design and manufacture 3D-printed assistive devices, adaptive controllers and toys, and many other projects to aid those in need across the world. We also conduct research in a variety of areas and strive to educate the community on STEM through outreach activities. We hold and participate in dozens of events each semester, including outreach, socials, fundraisers, and workshops. You can also find us at conferences such as the annual ATIA conference, where we showcase our designs to the community and develop contacts within the assistive technologies industry.

We are open to all majors and no experience is necessary! We will teach you all required skills, and your time commitment is as flexible as needed. We hope you will stop by our general body meetings or labs and consider joining our organization!
