A Braille learning toy for both blind and visually impaired/ Low Vision children to have an interesting and fun exposure to Braille literacy and functional skill learning.

"The innovation of double-sided sensory play provides a friendly and welcome platform to bridge the cultural gap between visually impaired children and sighted children."

What a wonderful engineering project to help close a learning gap that is present for children who need this literacy exposure early on. The video is excellent!
