Description of resource: 
This paper demonstrates that, with the use of a 3D printer, it is feasible to make 3D prints from STEM 2D images, creating a tactile learning experience in STEM subjects such as anatomy, histology, biology, astronomy, and geology–subjects that often are inaccessible to blind and visually impaired students. The work discussed by the researcher provides support for more widespread production of image-based, tactile learning objects mirroring the design of virtual learning objects.
