We are at the dawn of 3D printing and just beginning to realize how it will fundamentally change our lives. Recent improvements in technology are making 3D printers a feasible tool for consumers to acquire. Museums all over the world are digitizing their collections and this opens a creative chapter for 3D printing: We can make science accesible to new audiences by augmenting sensory experiences!

I am working on a project called Tactile Astronomy to bring Astronomy via 3D Printing as a tactile experience for blind youth. 

 I believe it’s time to open the final frontier for all. This project has been inspired by the July 2014 release by NASA of their STL library for public use.
I am actively looking for supporters and sponsors at present. In short order, I will be designing lesson plans, developing a website/ repository for the educational materials and 3D printing the objects.

The project is in its early stages. I believe it provides a compelling innovation and CSR story to it along with potential brand activation for companies.

The vision I have is to make 3D printers commonplace in each classroom across New Zealand. The Astronomy lessons can be a proof-of-concept and also a minimum-viable product in what can become a subscription service for lesson plans -and printable objects- where schools can augment interest in STEM at early ages.

If you have interest in making this project a reality, please contact me today: arturo.pelayo [ a t ] g mail . com

 TOUCH SCIENCE Let’s open outer space for y o u t h w h o h a v e n o t traditionally had ways to engage. Your sponsorship will seed the necessary equipment, tools and fund the design and development work for this innovative educational outreach experience for New Zealand classrooms. ONE 
 SMALL STEP We have a chance to spur youth interest in Science, Technology, Education and Math. What would young New Zealanders create, design, t h i n ke r, p o n d e r a n d wonder? Let’s make their visions a reality. JOIN THE MOVEMENT We need the support from a broad range of leaders and organizations to build this initiative. 
 
 Today you can support groundbreaking disruptive thinking and solutions aimed at positively impacting the lives of all New Zealanders. We are at the dawn of 3D printing and just beginning to realize how it will fundamentally change our lives. Recent improvements in technology are making 3D printers a feasible tool for consumers to acquire. Museums all over the world are digitizing their collections and this opens a creative chapter for 3D printing: We can make science accesible to new audiences by augmenting sensory experiences! With your support and sponsorship, I will design, develop, 3D print and deliver lesson plans for bringing Astronomy into classrooms for blind and limited-vision youth across New Zealand. We can work on this together. Today. I N T R O D U C I N G TACTILE ASTRONOMY 3D Printing can bring the cosmos as a tactile experience for blind youth. 
 
 It’s time to open the final frontier for all.
