Congratulations to Majeed Kazemitabaar who successfully defended his MS thesis entitled "MakerWear: A Tangible Construction Kit for Young Children to Create Interactive Wearables" on Aug 4, 2017 and just submitted the final thesis today. Woohoo! Majeed now plans to return to Iran and work at a startup. We wish him all the best!
We design, build, and evaluate new interactive tools and techniques to address pressing societal challenges. Makeability refers both to how our technological innovations make new abilities possible for humans as well as our educational mission to help students gain new abilities as they learn and grow through research, invention, and human-centered design.
