Did you know that some people read with their fingers? Join Understanding Our Differences to learn how this is done using Braille. This system of raised dots was created by Louis Braille 200 years ago to help blind people like himself read and write, and is still in use today! Follow the “Braille Trail” of engaging hands-on stations with braille books and games, tactile maps and current technology, meet students who use braille every day, and make your own braille bookmark to take home! Great for ages 5 and up
