Learn about the use of tactile storybooks that encourage tactile literacy skills in children who are blind or have low vision. Monash University’s SensiLab will teach you the basics of e-textiles: how to sew your own simple circuits in a tactile illustration of your design. Bring along your bright ideas about fun ways to teach concepts such as “big”, “small”, “up”, “down”, “square” and “round” in simple storybook pages.
Booking is required.
This event is part of the MPavilion STEM program in partnership with Office for Women.
