GoBabyGo program sponsored by College of Engineering to be featured at Tallgrass Film Festival

Matt Crow, a Wichita State alumnus and multimedia coordinator in the Office of Admissions, directed and produced a video that will be featured at the Tallgrass Film Festival at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 in the Orpheum Theatre. The video features GoBabyGo, a program sponsored by the College of Engineering, that modifies off-the-shelf ride-on toy cars for children with disabilities. As part of the program, engineering students collaborate with physical therapy students to customize cars and deliver them at no cost to the families.

The video, called a Shock Doc, was created as part of an initiative of the Office of Admissions to create an ongoing digital series featuring students, alumni and faculty. Crow submitted the video to the Tallgrass Film Festival for consideration in the “Kansas Filmmaker” category.
