Kettering Students Create Giant Lite Brite For Special Needs Kids – The Good News
It will be used in the sensory room at Genesee Intermediate School District’s Marion Crouse Instructional Center (MCIC).
Students at Kettering University who are part of the Student Association for Global Engineering (SAGE) have designed a 6-foot-wide, 4-foot-tall Lite Brite.
The principal at MCIC was at a children's museum in South Carolina and saw a giant Lite Brite - she thought it would be a very cool addition to their sensory room. So she reached out to Kettering.
The SAGE team realized that they didn't have the correct equipment to cut such a large piece of acrylic, so they transported the materials to Holland, MI.
MCIC says that the Lite Brite will help with the development and creativity of kids at the school.
Is it wrong to want one of these, just for fun? Very cool!
