** This is one accessibility brown bag session you don’t want to miss. Guest speaker Ken Hackbarth is a maker who uses his expertise in 3D printing to build assistive technology. His talk is called “3D-Printed Keyguards - Your Gateway to 3D-Printed Assistive Technology.” This talk isn’t just about assistive technology, though — you’ll learn how 3D printing opens a window into a different and fascinating world. Whether you're interested in 3D printing, assistive technology, or improving people's lives -- this talk will challenge the way you think about people and technology.
