Design and Problem Solving

This Design and Problem Solving activity & project also includes:

What if you had a design problem you wanted to solve, but were unable to draw because you were unable to see? Teach your learners with visual impairments that they can use Wikki Stix®, a braille ruler, Legos®, and Constructo Straws to discuss, plan, and create a tactile layout of their design solution. This is a wonderful idea that can be used in so many different ways.
