Electronics Experience: Intermediate
Identity: Blind

Quote: “I want to make IT (information technology) happen for my community and myself.”

Goals: Teach electronics nonvisually to community; learn through touch.

They often run into access barriers when teaching and feel that their students are missing out on material that could be easier to learn through touch. They want to provide more options to their students.
