Custom-made resources for teachers of the blind and visually impaired

Gorgeous 3D print models of math and science concepts are available to download and create for an accessible classroom. The screen-reader accessible site provides a library of 3D print designs organized into categories: biology, chemistry, math, and physics. 

Print animals, elements, shapes, a multiplications table and more. The site includes help for getting started with 3D printing. And there's a page for requesting specific models to aid your curriculum.
