MMC/UBC Laser Cut Keyguards - October 4th, 1:00 - 4:00 PM


#1

Makers Making Change is going to host a group of students from UBC Mechanical Engineering at VHS on Thursday, October 4th from 1:00 - 4:00 PM.

The students will be volunteering their time to design keyguards that will be laser cut out of acrylic. Keyguards are often used by people with disabilities to make it easier and more effective to use keyboards and touchscreen devices. https://www.makersmakingchange.com/project/laser-cut-keyguards/

The plan is to use the desk area for design and to use the laser cutter to make test in card stocks and the final version in acrylic if there is time.

If possible, please avoid the use of loud equipment during this time.
