In this session, attendees will learn how a collaboration between an art and a design teacher at two different schools/districts collaborated to help design a drawing prosthetic, using design thinking and 3D printing. In this session, we will be talking about the design process and using 3D printing to help Sara, who is a young artist who has spastic cerebral palsy, draw for the first time using an aid my senior students at the Charter High School for Architecture and designed and 3D printed for her. We will also be discussing my students and how working and visiting with the Comcast Accessibility Lab in Philadelphia helped them understand empathy and designing for someone with special needs.Both presenters will talk about how using the 3D printer can change the lives of students and teachers, and how 3D printing and design thinking have a role in that process.
