Thanks to technology and some teens studying STEM in North Carolina, even kids who can’t see can participate in this year’s Easter egg hunt. STEM students at Ayden Middle School designed eggs that give off a sound so children who are blind can find them without being able to see them.
Third graders at Wintergreen Intermediate school in Greenville NC wore blindfolds so they could search for Easter eggs in their school courtyard and experience it the way their blind classmate, Landon Smith, does.
Landon’s best friend Emma Leonard says she’s glad she got to hunt for eggs with her buddy. “Now I actually see how his life is,” she says, “and it makes me feel happy that he gets to do all that.”
