3D pens were added to the STEM van, MakerSpace activities and let some of the students use them recently.   One student shared the experience as “instant accessibility”, “first time I can feel what I had drawn”.

This student is learning the basic operation of the 3D pen: how to hold the pen, the location of the start/stop button, and keeping the pen on the work surface.  Note:  use cardboard, wood, braille paper but not a smooth glossy surface. The experience helps the student understand shapes, angles, drawing, etc.

 

A student completed an Ozobot then shared their experience with another student.

 

Three types of media were available for the student to complete the project- print, large print, and Braille.  Student selected a color coded graphic of a completed project to work from.
