Boise State teacher candidates were recently featured on the news for assistive technology solutions using 3D printing. Joseph Fritz, Maggie Dillon, and Kierstyn Heilbrun worked with Lisa Beymer, clinical assistant professor, through the UCREATE (Undergraduate Collaborative for Research in Equity and Access in TEaching) project, to create individualized, customized supports for local high school students with disabilities.
Utilizing the resources available in the Boise State Maker Lab, the three teacher candidates designed and 3D printed individualized accessibility devices to increase independence for students.
Their work was also displayed at the VIP/Maker Showcase on November 14.
