Students Use 3D Printer to Develop iPad Device that Helps Classmate with Angelman Syndrome

When Hommocks Technology Teacher Mr. Ron Nobles explained to his 8th grade students  the challenge of developing a product that would enable one of their fellow classmates with Angelman Syndrome to learn better, students jumped at the chance to help. Lynn Rivas and Sarah Lord worked to create the perfect solution for Special Education Teacher Maura Morello-Linkowski, who had been struggling to create a device that would effectively allow her student to see her on a screen as she taught her lessons.


Angelman Syndrome  is a genetic disorder that mainly affects the nervous system.
