Engineering students at BSU are part of a nationwide program called “Go Baby Go” that helps children with mobility impairments move around by using toy cars as wheelchairs.

The idea was to find a cost effective, low-tech way for kids with disabilities related to everything from cerebral palsy and spina bifida to get them moving. This is a life changer for a lot of kids. The team rewires the cars so that all the kids have to do is press a button and it makes the car go.

St. Luke’s Children’s hospital is hosting an event along with the BSU Women in Engineering program called "Go Baby Go" on March 11 to bring these adapted cars to children right here in the Treasure Valley!
