LEGO’s newly released Braille bricks are designed to help blind and visually impaired kids learn Braille in a playful and engaging way.
The LEGO Foundation is sending the blocks, free of charge, to school districts around the country.
For schools that won’t be reopening this fall, the LEGO Foundation hopes that teachers and administrators will send the bricks to students’ homes who can benefit from them.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with LEGO to distribute an incredible tool to help introduce students to braille,” American Printing House President Craig Meador tells CNN.
“Reading braille means literacy that connects students to lifelong learning and opportunity.”
As school openings remain uncertain, the LEGO foundation hopes the product will give parents and educators more options with respect to visually impaired learners.
