A set of four manually powered wheel chairs is maintained within the OSE laboratory. The chairs are used as part of and INSY 3021 laboratory exercise design to teach undergraduates the purpose of the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act and how to evaluate a building for ADA compliance. Students take turns sitting in the wheelchair outside a building on the Auburn campus. While sitting in the chair, they try to gain access to a predetermined location within the building. Based on this experience, the students collect relevant data regarding the design of the building and any potential accessibility problems.
