Monash Sensory Science presents 10 multisensory science books

Monash Sensory Science presents an exciting one-day event on the “My Goodness” book launch designed for low vision, blind, hearing-impaired, deaf and non-disabled audiences of all ages and science literacy.

Touch, see and listen at this interactive exhibition of 10 multisensory science books which have been developed to explore the world of infection, immunity, food and nutrition.

The books displayed will utilise large print text, braille, tactile artworks, haptic and audio display to create a truly interactive experience. They are intended for a roving exhibition that will travel across metropolitan and regional communities and disability educational centres in Victoria.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute’s Rossjohn Laboratory, and Swinburne University’s Interaction Design Lab.

The exhibition will be delivered to the public keeping with COVID-19 safe requirements, which will allow people in groups of five to view the interactive books, ask questions and have fun. We welcome members of the blind and low vision community of all ages to join us.
