Helping Blind Students Read, Write & Do Math, With Lego!

Legos have been a staple in every child’s toy collection, and now they are adding a set with Braille! How is it helping kids learn to read? When it comes to glasses, what does the future look like when they can focus according to where your eyes look? And space travel has taught us a lot about what’s out there, but more importantly it taught us about failure. Read all about it in this week’s Tech News 4 Kids newsletter!

For some people, one pair of glasses isn’t enough. Luckily, some Stanford researchers have created “auto-focals” that can track our eyes and adjust to what we need. They’re hoping that these glasses might take the place of surgery for people who need it. Find out how this technology works, and the science behind it, here!

50 years ago, we landed on the moon for the first time. There have been countless successes NASA has celebrated, the moon landing one of the largest, but there have been plenty of failures along the way. What did this culture of learning from failure harness in the space-travel world? Find out all about it here!
