Technology aids visually impaired children in Easter egg hunt

Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired held its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at their Academy Playground, emphasizing their mission of showing that “it’s possible to see without sight.” With 45 students participating in the event, each Easter egg emitted a beeping sound to help the blind and visually impaired students locate them. President and CEO Virginia Jacko highlighted the importance of inclusivity for children with vision disabilities, who are often left out of traditional activities like Easter egg hunts. The Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allowed both visually impaired students and those without vision disabilities to join in the festive tradition using their sense of hearing.

The South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad sponsored and assisted with the event to ensure all the beeping eggs were functional for the students at the Miami Lighthouse Academy. In addition to the egg hunt, students received Easter baskets and had the opportunity to interact with a police robot during the event.
