Young people will be inspired by the story of Louis Braille, who was only twelve years old when he began work on the writing system that changed the lives of blind people all over the world. They'll learn the basics of Louis's alphabet and practice writing on a braille slate and a braillewriter. Advanced students will learn more about braille contractions and whole word signs, as well as how to write music and do math with braille. Participants may attend one session, two sessions, or all three! Admission is free, but registration is required. Best for children ages 8-14.
