The main themes are to somehow incorporate a symbol of technology / engineering, with a more classic symbol of strength and courage. It should be a clean design that is well adapted to online, print, and even clothing. We may use this logo on clothing for sports and outdoor adventure like hiking, so the logo should evoke a sense of strength. The apparel would be sold to raise funds for the nonprofit.
I have attached on VERY rough mockup of a concept logo design. It is unfinished, but it is an option from which to start. That said, I am completely open to new ideas and directions. The thought behind the concept logo is that there is a modern gear (to represent technology) and inside of that a Spartan symbol / shield that represents strength, courage, and the fight of the disabled (it also kind of looks like the letter "A".
Again, this is a very, very rough idea. Think this could work as a starting point but would like to see if made more sleek and modern. Or would like to see other concepts as well. Also, the logo should somehow incorporation our name "American Bionics Project." Other images that could be used could be a Phoenix (thinking of the disabled as rising from the ashes) or other images.
