March Podcast by OHIO STATE SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND --OSSB-- published on 2019-03-27T18:07:10Z This month on the podcast we travel to the CloverNook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Cincinnati, Ohio to hear about the Braille Challenge. We listen to excerpts from the Little NC pep rally held on March 7. Our little NC squad traveled to the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired to compete in wrestling, cheerleading, swimming and goalball. We hear from Jeff Ransey who works in the Conservation department at the Columbus Zoo. And why does OSSB have a chocolate fair every year? Stay tuned and find out. You will hear information about the alumni reunion taking place on the OSSB campus the first weekend in June. We catch up with some alumni and see what they are up to these days and we talk about bell Camp happening here on campus in July put on by the Ohio Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind. Andre and Mrs. Smith visit the OSU College of Optometry and conduct an informative reach and teach activity. We look at some new technology coming on the market for the blind and visually impaired with a visit from Jim Sullivan from Humanware. He discusses the features of the new BrailleNote Touch Plus. 3d printing is becoming ever so much more popular and OSSB is using 3d-printing in the model club with help from experts from see3d. See3D is designed to connect people who enjoy 3D printing with their visually impaired neighbors. Low vision and blind individuals can request models to give new meaning to words that some students have never been able to understand. We conclude this month’s podcast with another listen-in on a reach and teach activity with our students and the O&M department. They visit a Mennonite school and shared a great day of learning together. Thank you all so much for tuning in every month and supporting the students and staff at OSSB and all the things we do.
