eagleeyes project

Welcome Maureen Gates!
Maureen Gates may seem like a familiar face. She has worked with the EagleEyes project for the past 10 years, although in a different capacity. With the departure of Marialice Curran, Maureen has taken on a new role within the EagleEyes program. The B.E.A.T. recently had a chance to sit down and chat with Maureen about her new position.

Ken Carpenter: Connected despite ALS
For Ken Carpenter, the Camera Mouse was a link to his past. In late 2000, Ken was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS patients lose control of voluntary movement due to a progressive wasting away of certain nerve cells.

Irish Education Minister tours EagleEyes facilities
The Irish Minister of Education, Noel Dempsey, recently traveled to the U.S. to sign an International Accord on Education. On his way back from Washington, he made sure he visited a place he had heard much about: Boston College. One of the highlights of the Minister’s stay was his visit to the EagleEyes facilities.

New EagleEyes program
A new EagleEyes project endeavors to provide those with limited voluntary movement the opportunity to communicate through the computer.
