A team of students in EECS 495 project work remotely together off campus in Ann Arbor, MI. Each semester Dave Chesney teaches EECS 495, a course where students work together to build accessible software systems for individuals with a disability or illness. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Chesney moved the course online and refocused it to tackle issues around COVID-19. By doing so, Chesney provided his students with the opportunity to build and find themselves during an uncertain semester. Disclaimer: Photographs of students were taken off campus during the 2020 Spring/Summer semester in accordance with state and university guidelines.
