Arkansas Students Learn To Build Dog Wheelchairs
The project began when teacher Georgia Summit’s Chihuahua mix, Lila, started having trouble walking because of two slipped disks in her spine. The surgery to repair Lila’s spine problem was $4,500 and came with an 80 percent chance of permanent paralysis, so Summitt began researching dog wheelchairs. As Summitt said to the Jonesboro Sun, “after you’ve had a sick pet and you have to pay the expenses, who can afford that?”

So, she took the issue to her students, seeing it as a chance for them to put mathematics into practical application.
