Build a Better Book: Engineering with Empathy

Build a Better Book: Engineering with Empathy

The Build a Better Book project engages youth Makers with a unique, authentic engineering challenge: the design and fabrication of accessible, interactive books for children who are blind or visually impaired. Sites use 3D printers, laser cutters, craft materials and other tools to create books that can be seen, felt and heard. We’ll play a game of Tactile Pictionary to identify key elements of effective tactile graphics and share with participants how they can contribute to this effort.
