Students with visual impairments generally don’t look forward to getting an annual class yearbook. But thanks to an engineering professor at Mercer University, this staple of the high school experience is available at the Georgia Academy for the Blind in Macon.

Professor Sinjae Hyun last Wednesday presented seven graduating seniors with the first 3D yearbook ever created. The project is the first of its kind in the world, Hyun said.

“I searched, I Googled it — touch 3D, touchable yearbook, yearbook for blind — There’s nothing there,” Hyun said.

Being a kid who defies gender norms is tough. It can be tougher when you're also contending with pressures — and stereotypes — tied to your race.

This week on Ask Code Switch, we're taking on a question from a couple in Raleigh, North Carolina. They wrote in to ask about how race and gender expression play out in their own family:

A teenage brain is a fascinating, still-changing place. There's a lot going on: Social awareness, risk-taking, peer pressure; all are heightened during this period.

Until relatively recently, it was thought that the brain was only actively developing during childhood — but in the last two decades, researchers have confirmed that the brain continues to develop during adolescence — a period of time that can stretch from the middle-school years into early adulthood.

At least 11 Nike executives have left the company this year over complaints of an uncomfortable workplace that discriminates against women.

The first to go was Nike's president, Trevor Edwards. The announcement came in mid-March that the company's No. 2 is retiring in August after more than 25 years. Edwards had been considered a favorite to succeed CEO Mark Parker.
