Learn, share, and grow with TechOWL.

Visit our Community Space

Explore our new public community space dedicated to assistive technology! During open hours, test out cutting-edge vision equipment, mobility devices, and other assistive tech options. Drop off or pick up used equipment like walkers, shower chairs, and commodes. Discover accessible video gaming with the Xbox Adaptive Controller. See 3D printing in action for creating assistive devices, and learn basic wheelchair repair and maintenance. Join us for a hands-on experience in the world of assistive technology.

If our open hours don’t work for you, email TechOWL@temple.edu to set up an appointment.

Consider sending us an email to TechOWL@temple.edu with the heading “Community Space Visit” or fill out the “Connect with TechOWL” form before you come visit so we know what you’re interested in learning about.
