The KSSB students continue to advance their skills and creativity in the Makerspace!

Accessibility is so much easier for a low vision student when using a laptop, and not the build-in LCD menu .  Since the laptop has several magnification tools, the student can select which tool is best for them. The photos below, illustrate how close/far the student is from the display when using the embroidery machine.

Several STEM activities were tried with our elementary students:  3D pen, building structures with magnetic shapes and large rods.  Other more familiar STEM activities were Code jumper, Cubelets, Ozobots, etc.   See the attached pics.  One student that enjoyed hands-on activities  that also had lots of sounds was introduced to see if it increased his time on task with a functional task.
