CSDB student exploring sponge  

One of the goals of the Feel the Impact: Empowering Visually-Impaired Students Through NASA Adaptive Curriculum Enhancement (ACE) IDEAS grant was to develop comprehensive guidelines for use by NASA mission Education and Public Outreach (E/PO) providers and the general public when adapting graphics and images for visually impaired students.

The ACE Visualizing Science Guidelines for Designing Tactile Graphics were compiled as developers received feedback from both students with many types of visual impairment and educators at the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind (CSDB) during pilot test sessions.  Classroom teachers involved in our national field tests indicated that ACE materials helped students "visualize" abstract science concepts.
