Charles Herbert Flowers High School
Portable lock device for the blind
The Charles Herbert Flowers High School InvenTeam has embarked upon the challenge to design and build a lock for the blind and visually impaired. The challenge for our innovative project is making a portable Braille lock with a location device that accommodates a blind/visually impaired individual and is adaptable to any type of locker that requires an additional lock. The portability, as well as the locator device of the lock, is beneficial. The range of our product can span from public schools to gyms, spas, offices, laboratories, or anywhere a locker can be found.
The InvenTeam received a 2009 Continuation Grant.
