Project Description

All Australians deserve the opportunity to participate in science activities including people with disabilities. This project will develop and deliver modified maker activities that meet the requirements of people with different abilities. Maker workshops provide opportunities for engagement with scientific principles in a creative and hands on manner. The activities will be custom designed to engage participants that have significant motor disabilities and/or cognitive disabilities. The focus will be on engaging participants in the scientific activities focused on what they are able to achieve rather than any limitations.
