Cardboard Creations from the EDGE Lab

June 6th, 2014

The Canada Foundation for Innovation / Fondation canadienne pour l’innovation published this video about some of the projects going on in the lab last winter.

Jason Nolan, director of Ryerson University’s EDGE Lab in Toronto, designs and builds objects out of cardboard that allow kids with special needs to play freely and independently. Nolan showcased his work as CFI’s guest at the Canada Science and Technology Museum’s “Cool Science Saturday” event in Ottawa on February 15.

Cardboard Rocking Chair, Geta Chair/Autism Rocker

April 24th, 2012

Check out our videos of cardboard rocking chairs.

The first one is for a simple cardboard seat for people who like to move instead of sitting still.

This rocker can be used on the ground at circle time (for children) or on hard surface chairs for adults.

The basic design can also be adapted to use as a footrest.
Geta Chair/Autism Rocker


This chair has a clever design that keeps little fingers safe from being pinched.
