EAST stands for Environmental and Spatial Technology and its purpose is to use sophisticated technology to solve problems in the community while helping students grow. EAST at Joe T. Robinson Middle School is the program that initiated this project. There was a meeting at Arkansas Children’s Hospital to discuss recreational opportunities for people with disabilities in Arkansas. A physical therapist who knew about EAST came to Joe T. and proposed going out to trails and filming, mapping, and photographing spots on the trails. We initiated a collaboration with the University of Central Arkansas, the Arkansas Department of Health, and the Office of Disability and Health. Action Wheelchairs donated a wheelchair for us to film.
