Studio 775: Create a Tactile-Accessible Book - Register
All ages, and especially adults and kids in grades 3-12 - Join us in the Studio 775 Makerspace to help create a tactile-accessible book.
We have partnered with Build a Better Book to design and create literacy materials accessible for people with print disabilities. We will be using various DIY materials and Makerspace technologies to create pages that represent lines from popular children's folk songs, such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" or "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
Kids under grade 3 should be accompanied by an adult (enter parent/guardian name where indicated). Registration is required (parents, no need to register yourselves, just include your info in the appropriate part of the form!).
You will be registering for all July sessions!

About Build a Better Book
The Build a Better Book project, based at the University of Colorado Boulder, works with school and library Makerspaces to engage youth in the design and fabrication of accessible picture books and graphics. Using both low- and high-tech Makerspace tools, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, Makey Makeys, conductive boards and craft materials, youth design, fabricate, test and refine multi-modal books, games and STEM graphics that incorporate tactile and audio features. These products are designed by and for learners with visual impairments as well as other physical and learning disabilities. Through the Build a Better Book initiative, middle and high school youth develop technology skills and learn about STEM careers as they design and create accessible, multi-modal picture books, graphics and games that can be seen, touched and heard!
