Emily Herring, a biomedical engineering and honors student, chose to become an engineer because she wanted to be able to develop tools that would enhance the lives of others.
As part of that desire, Herring was involved in the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program for two and a half years and worked with Scottsdale Training and Rehabilitation Services (STARS). She noticed individuals with cerebral palsy who had the ability to read were often unable to do so due to physical disabilities. Simply turning pages could require the assistance of a STARS staff member.
