During the 2014-2015 school year, a number of students from Ironi Alef high school in Haifa took part in The Isef foundation program called winner of science. During the eight months program, the students arrived at the Fab-Lab once a week for an educational program at the most advanced laboratory teaching planning and digital fabrication in Israel.
The first task was creating products for people with disabilities. After studying the subject the students came to the conclusion that there are many everyday life products that were created, so they decided to design leisure products which can improve the quality of life. As part of the process students examined different possibilities like sport accessories. Eventually the participants decided to focus on familiar board games designed for people with people with disabilities.
For their final project the students created memory and Remmikub games for the visually impaired, made with bumps or raised parts which player can feel and are easily identified. The games also include Braille writing.
The Remmikub tiles were designed with 123D Design software and printed with a 3D printer, using plastic. The racks and box were designed using SketchUp software.
The memory game board and cards were designed with 123D Design software and printed with a 3D printer, using plastic.
The students who created the products: Daniel Levingrad, Alexandra Mihena, Sara Melnik, Avital Weisbord & Eli Strogetsky.
Fab-Lab instructors: Javier Jerba & Jonathan Basri
