College Students Creatively Engineer Children’s Games

July 2018



In a repeat of last year’s successful cooperation, Israel Elwyn’s Karmiel Early Intervention Center (EIC) was again a learning laboratory for students at the ORT Braude Academic College of Engineering in Karmiel.  The partnership between IE and the college allowed students in Orit Braun’s Rehabilitative Biomechanics course to gain first-hand experience with the learning patterns of children with disabilities.


Last month, this year’s students participated in a ceremonial handover of their projects for the EIC, concluding an intensive year that included identifying the needs of the EIC’s children, joint meetings, concept presentations and a lot of hard work.




Following presentation of the completed projects, the children gave the students small gifts and then happily rushed to take full advantage of the new and creative solutions that enable them to play games adapted to their needs.  The event concluded with a singsong.



We are grateful to ORT Braude for a fruitful second year of cooperation and especially to the students – budding engineers who put their imaginations and practical studies to work for the benefit of the EIC’s children.
