AbstractThis case study describes how students in a design course in electrical engineering at Texas A&M University often participate in service learning projects. In one project, a group of students decided to work with the Brazos Valley Rehabilitation Center to help design and build an Auditory Visual Tracker (AVIT), which is used to evaluate the training of visual skills for children with disabilities. Despite having to work beyond the end of the semester to complete the project, the students were extremely gratified at how the children were so excited about the AVIT, and how useful it was going to be for the Rehabilitation Center.
