A project log for 3D Prints for Teachers of the Visually Impaired

Visually impaired students can make great use of 3D prints to learn just about any subject, but their teachers need help making good models.

When we created the Google Group (as written up in the last log) we promoted it via our social media and educational contacts.

A few days into posting our Google Group to get participants we noticed that we had accumulated a few members, but not yet any volunteers to try and create model files. We went back and reworded some parts of this project (based on some suggestions from teachers of the visually impaired) and encouraged a few friends in particular to get out there and either put out more requests or claim a project for their students to do.

We were concerned that perhaps teachers were reluctant to claim a model in case their students could not successfully complete the project. We changed the wording a little there too and have added a general "questions and say hello" thread to see what people are thinking. Let us know in the comments (or in the Group) if you have suggestions!
