The Problem

We are making a website that will organize the production of 3D models for students who are blind. We are hoping to build a database, through our website, of school tech clubs that would be willing to make requested 3D models and send them to the schools and classrooms that educate students who are blind.

Our Plan

Schools for the blind or individuals who are blind would be able to easily access the website using their screen readers and braille displays, to submit a request for a certain 3D model. Contributors, who would be students involved with their technology clubs in schools, could then print the request and mail it to the blind school or individuals at the school free of charge. We hope to expand our efforts to Familias Especiales, an organization that helps children with special needs in Matagalpa, Nicaragua to provide the students who are blind with the maps and models they need.
