TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology engineering design students presented toy prototypes for children with Reach Services on Thursday.
Five teams of students came up with their own ideas based on conversations with Reach employees and worked for six weeks on the prototypes.
“It’s important that it’s a toy that they enjoy playing with and they want to come back to, and that it also develops their skills at the same time,” said RHIT freshman Vance Allen.
“To help somebody develop skills that you use every single day is something that we strive to do and by being able to do that I think it makes the world a better place,” said RHIT freshman Avery Zoss.
RHIT freshmen explain their team’s design:
Toys will be taken to Reach after their designs are completed.
