Description: Go Baby Go (GBG) is an international grassroots open source movement focused on real time, real world solutions for mobility. The program began in 2012 with founder Cole Galloway at the University of Delaware. Integrating assistive technology, families, clinicians and industry partners, the program provides children with disability the opportunity for movement, mobility and socialization and has been expanding ever since. The mission of GBG is centrally focused on the concept that mobility is a human right. The program thrives on disruptive innovation, academic research and community outreach that provide social mobility experiences which create opportunities for independence and self-expression.

Dr. Galloway and Andrina Sabet will discuss the Go Baby Go program and recommendations on incorporating modified ride on cars as part of STEM/STEAM curriculum. Providing modified ride on cars to children and clinics in your community requires commitment, knowledge and collaborations that can expand on the typical STEM/STEAM curriculum.

Presenters: Dr. Cole Galloway, Go Baby Go and Andrina Sabet, Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation and owner of Mobility Matters, LLC. 

Dr. Galloway’s “blue collar futurist” approach guides his interdisciplinary collaborative work. His personal interests in family, music, comedy and social justice mix effortlessly with his professional background of rehabilitation, neuroscience, child development, human-machine interaction and open source culture.

His research— focused on the key role of social mobility in life — serves to directly challenge the out of date culture of pediatric and adult rehabilitation with a highly hopeful set of alternative products and processes.

As the Founder of Go Baby Go (GBG) – a +90 chapter research, education and advocacy movement — he invents and studies rehabilitative devices for children and adults with significant mobility issues. His approach of combining high tech and low tech into “go tech” has garnered funding, awards and partnerships with top-tier organizations including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Department of Education, the Smithsonian’s American History Museum, the medical and toy industries such as Fisher-Price, and the American Physical Therapy Association. His latest push is to exponentially scale the impact of the GBG movement through implementing formal curriculum into primary and secondary STEM/STEAM education in the US and abroad.
