The Open Style Lab summer program’s applications are open for 2016, accepting applications from graduate students or recent graduate alumni.
Candidates can apply by filling out the “Designers” form. Open Style Lab operates on the weekends for 10 weeks and we are planning to offer summer-long unpaid internships in MIT Labs (Skylar Tibbits’ Self Assembly Lab, Leia Stirling’s Man Vehicle Lab) for the weekdays.
What?
Open Style Lab (www.openstylelab.org) aims to give design, occupational therapy & engineering students the opportunity to collaboratively create functional yet attractive clothing for and with clients with disabilities.
 
Why?
The advent of wearable technology and increasingly sophisticated design has the potential to transform the role of clothing in our lives. Join the revolution to engineer enhanced clothing that can address real healthcare needs!
