Field trips and visits

A group of women, many in headscarves, smile at the camera. Behind them are more people, a blue wall, and the shelves of a workshop.

The Adaptive Design Association is happy to welcome group and class field trips. Beginning with a guided tour of our studio, groups build their own cardboard creations as well as meet our fabricators for an in-depth look into how complex custom adaptations are built. During the tour participants will see, touch, and try unique, fun solutions for improving accessibility. Visitors leave our studio with their own personal cardboard item, but more important, leave with a deeper understanding of how affordable materials, simple tools, and one’s own creativity can generate solutions that make a difference.

All group field trips are 1.5 hours.

Rate: $400

For individuals visits we offer a experience through Airbnb. Learn more here.
