JETS/AbilityOne National Engineering Design Challenge

The JETS/AbilityOne National Engineering Design Challenge (NEDC) is an engineering design competition open to students in grades 9-12. Teams of students design and build an ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY device to help a person in their community with severe disabilities succeed in his or her workplace.

The NEDC is a cross-curricular, collaborative competition in which teams of students use their creativity, problem solving, math, science, research, writing, presentation, drafting and design skills to create a real-life assistive technology device to help individuals with disabilities in their community. The NEDC is a service-learning program that educates young people about careers in engineering, increases disability awareness, promotes community involvement and inspires a spirit of engagement and a willingness to help others. High school students learn first-hand how engineering can make a positive difference in someone's life!

NEDC teams can win prizes, including a free trip to Washington, DC, and cash prizes for their schools.
