Classrooms are using on-line educational resources and textbooks.  How does this impact students who are visually impaired who can not visually access pictures and information?  3D printed models are being explored as one tool to provide hands-on experiences for all students, including students who are visually impaired.  Feelin' DNA is a passionate group at the University of North Carolina whose goal is to inspire visually impaired students through access to quality 3D models and files of STEM materials.  Currently, Feelin' DNA is creating 2D laser-cut wooden models and 3D models in the Makerspace - a collaborative community who creates and shares digital files for 3D printing.
