"My project for the class was the beep baseball session for the Able,Active,Adaptive Conference. This was the first class I've ever had without essays, quizzes, and exams, yet it pushes us to shape the project on time by actually go out and talk to the real world. The best memory I had with the class was when seeing the coach that I discussed with demonstrating the adaptive sport that I pitched a semester ago happening right in front of my eyes."
