Ken looks into how we look at people with disabilities in our current societies and what improvements or changes could be made to these perceptions.

Ken Chua is a committed engineer who leads the (these)abilities workshop at the National Design Center in Singapore. His work has encouraged various members of the community, including students at UWCSEA’s Engineers Without Borders, to input their own ideas about how to better the lives of the disabled. One of his latest community projects involves easing the boarding of wheelchairs onto the MRT.
