This project is a proposal to attend educational needs for blind children in poor and developing countries. It's an
opportunity to know, explore, learn & open a world of new possibilities to children.
How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?
Simple laser cutter and 3D printer
Describe your project in detail
The project is focused on develop kits for teaching basic STEM concepts by laser cutted/3D printed pieces. The kits will
be OpenDesign and documented for fabrication and also for teaching on blind children. We have experience on teaching
practices with handicapped people (deaf-and-dumb) and also with little children
