Touching Space – Accessible Astronomy

The “Touching Space” initiative aims to introduce the wonders of our Universe via a range of sensory items, such as meteorites, tactile display boards, braille books, auditory media and even smell. These items, which will integrate with software developed with accessibility in mind, are designed to allow people with a wide range of disabilities to experience space in a way never envisaged before. The project will aim to produce items suitable for wide range of ages, from primary school children through to adults with learning difficulties.
