Maze Day 2009!

| tags: blind, enabling technology

Maze Day is for visually impaired and blind students in grades K-12, their parents and teachers. Your students will enjoy fun and educational computer applications developed especially for them. UNC students will learn how well their accessible applications work with real users. And everyone will have a good time!

We plan to have a wide variety of accessible fun, educational, and exercise activities including:
  • Trekker Breeze Scavenger Hunt (click for more details)
  • Hark the Sound
  • Braille Twister
  • Sonic Zoom
  • Descent into Madness
  • Last Crusade
  • Making music on the DDR pad.
  • Two player Simon combined with an upper body workout.
  • Accessible Guitar Hero Freeplay.
  • Life size and computer mazes.
  • Rockin' SafaWii: A rocking-horse (or therapy ball) game that combines exercise and acoustic localization.
  • Move to the Music: An accessible version of Dance Dance Revolution for a good exercise workout to music.
  • Sweet Beat: an edible drum sequencer.
  • SamiSays: a program for recording stories with sound effects.
  • And there's always a little bit more... but you'll have to attend to see what that is.

Lunch will be provided. Free!
