We are proud to partner with the Science Discovery Center at the University of Colorado, Boulder on a growing project. Build a Better Book is an initiative connected with libraries and makerspaces across the country.
Middle and high school students create accessible picture books for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The Center is proud to join this project. Visit Build a Better Book by clicking
Through this project, students will:
work with faculty and professionals
engage in various maker technologies
participate in meaningful discussions and simulations to better understand their audience for the project
This year we'll be engaging you in this program is two ways:
One-time family events: look for regular family events that will give you a taste of what it means to be a part of Build a Better Book!
A long-term book-making workshop: coming in early 2021, we will be working with students to build better books for those who are blind or visually impaired.
Stay Tuned for Event Details
"Through this Build a Better Book initiative, middle and high school youth develop technology skills as they design and create accessible, multi-modal picture books that you can see, touch, and hear!"
