In this creative project, students will be introduced to an example tactile matching game, which will be 3D printed by the teacher prior to the lesson. By discussing tactile discrimination and awareness as a class, students will gain an understanding of how the games are created and played, together with their benefits. Following on from the discussion, students will participate in a skill-building tutorial, where they will follow instructions to design a tactile matching game in CAD software. In the main part of the lesson, students will be split into teams to design and 3D print their own unique tactile matching games.
