Overview

Discover over 50 Assistive Technology Solutions that can be created in minutes using Instamorph, PVC, and Acrylic. Rapid fabrication of solutions is important not only due to limited time and resources but the fact that solutions developed often needs to be further adapted or changed. Instamorph, PVC, and Acrylic can be used, reused and adapted in many ways. This session will explore solutions created with this material and fabrication methods, materials and resources.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will identify at least 10 solutions that can be created with instamorph.
  2. Participants will be able to identify at least 10 solutions that can be created with PVC
  3. Participants will be able to identify at least 10 solutions that can be created with acrylic
  4. Participants will be able to describe at least three techniques for working with Instamorph, PVC, or acrylic.
