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.
