Middle school students at St. Thomas the Apostle school created tactile enhancements for board books as part of their STEAM and service learning unit. They worked in teams to interpret the books and used craft materials, found materials at home, and 3D print designs on TinkerCAD to create tactile elements.
These pages incorporate dioramas and 3D scenes, raised outline drawings, and experimentation with textures and paint. Students worked to maintain the figure silhouettes and feel of the original illustrations.
