Children's Hospital, Colorado

They are focused on making sure the children have the best experience possible at the hospital even in non-ideal circumstances. They provide countless fun and education activities for the children during their stay at the hospital. The engineering team was fortunate to be able to visit the hospital and do an outreach event with the kids there and play fun games the incorporated STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, art and math) concepts. The Child Life Specialists at the hospital played a key role in helping the team understand the unique requirements the hospital has in order to create a safe and clean toy for the kids playing with it. The team has had an amazing experience working with Children Hospital Colorado and can’t wait to deliver the education STEAM toy to the kids!
