Mobility, Accessibility, and Design Series: Part 1 | Kat Steele BOOM: Biomechanics on our Minds

    • Science

We are always trying to improve BOOM and we couldn’t do it without you. Thanks to your survey feedback, we created our first-ever BOOM series where we focus on one topic for a series of interviews. The theme of this series is mobility, accessibility, and design!

Our first episode features Professor Kat Steele, who is at the University of Washington and leading her own reimagining mobility series with the community. We discuss her own research that employs principles of universal design and accessibility, and learn how she continually adapts everything from her writing process to her classroom design to be more inclusive of people of all abilities.
