3D Periodic Table Model: Beta testers needed!

Featured Image: 
3D Element Book with colorful large print symbols, braille, and unique design that folds and groups element blocks.

Note: Roy Alexander is currently seeking educators to beta test (fall 2019). Please contact him directly about this opportunity!

Roy Alexander is actively recruiting educators of students with visual impairments to beta test his portable braille version of the chemical elements in 3D book form. This is a unique, portable 3D braille periodic table is carefully designed with large, high contrast symbols and braille. The website's description includes, "By transforming the visual chemistry concepts of the periodic table into an always available tactile manipulative, VI and blind students can be more successful in chemsitry classrooms with immediate data reference matching the many visual sources of such vital data for sighted students." This unique design, folds and groups element blocks, making it easier to understand element groups.

I don’t have any high school Braille students who are presently enrolled in chemistry, but my colleague does.

I have a 9th grade high academic braille reading student who will be in Chemistry next year. I would love to help next year.

I have two possible students that may benefit from use with this model. One is in Chemistry (highschool), and the other is in general science in the 7th grade.

I’m interested in beta testing. I am the science teacher, grades 6-12, at WV School for the Blind, one of those classes being chemistry. The periodic table is used in every science class I teach. Thanks
