Texas A&M sophomore develops tactile maps to help visually impaired people

While most university freshmen spend their first year adjusting to life away from their families and the rigors of higher education, Texas A&M mechanical engineering major Tyler Wooten set out to do more. 

After taking a 3D printing course in the Engineering Innovation Center, Wooten decided he wanted to use his newfound knowledge on a project that would help others. He eventually came up with the idea of designing a 3D-printed tactile map of Texas A&M’s campus for visually impaired students.
