25 students at Wintergreen Intermediate school took part in a fun, yet practical lesson on visual impairment. With the help of beeping eggs made by Ayden Middle School Students.
3rd graders were blindfolded and sent on their way to find the eggs.
The eggs were made following a Pinterest link that a teacher had.
All that was used were simple circuits, a beeper, and a battery.
“Well, this activity is two-fold. one being that this student gets to be included with his peers and participate in any activity and it helps his friends and his class see that you can do anything that any other kid can do even if you can’t see” said Robin Blevin, Lead Teacher for the deaf and hard of hearing and the visually impaired, Pitt County Schools.
Blevin also adds that the activity gives students the opportunity to put skills they’re learning in their S.T.E.M. electives to good practical use.
The 48 eggs that were made were expected to take a few weeks to complete but, the students finished them all in just a few days.
