Project Sidewalk Featured as 'Tweet of the Week' in UW Today
Published Sep 06, 2019
Around noon on Saturday Sept 22, Makeability Lab collaborator and UW CSE PhD student, Galen Weld, became the 76th person to summit the 100 highest mountains in Washington and the youngest person to do so! Congrats Galen!
Above, a picture of Galen on top of Buck Mountain in the Glacier Peak Wilderness--the final mountain in the list.
Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, potluck picnicking, games, & fun. The Summer 2019 Makeability Lab retreat was a great success. As the summer ends, also an opportunity to thank and say goodbye to our wonderful high school and ugrad interns.
Makeability Lab member Manaswi Saha was an invited keynote speaker to the Washingtion State Ridesharing Organization (WSRO) conference. She gave a talk on Project Sidewalk entitled Project Sidewalk: Mapping the accessibility of the physical world at scale using interactive computational tools.
Congrats Manaswi and thanks for representing the Project Sidewalk team.
